English Graduate Organization

EGO, the English Graduate Organization, was formed to assist in serving the needs of the English Department's graduate students, a mission to which it still adheres. The student-run organization holds social events, provides students with information about the Tuscaloosa area, and holds fundraisers which help pay for EGO's annual activities as well as smaller perks like submission postage fees. A rallying point for the Department's graduate students, EGO helps bring together students from all the various degree programs, leaving new friends and partnerships in its wake.
