About the Society

While EngSoc's membership is primarily English majors, it is not exclusive. We are open to literary-minded students of all majors and disciplines. There are no dues and invite we everyone to come to our open events!

The UI English Society's mission is:

  • To provide a space for literary minded people to share their love of literature and creative writing
  • To strengthen connections between literary groups on campus and the literary community of IC
  • To foster relationships between students and faculty
  • To create a greater sense of connectedness between English majors

We host a variety of events throughout the academic year, including:

  • Social events: games, crafts, trivia, holiday parties, etc.
  • Educational events: study sessions, Inspiration Series faculty talks, etc.
  • Literary events: open mics, readings, workshops, etc.
  • Charity fundraising
  • And much more!
