On April 5, 2017 the Department of Linguistics and English Language held an award banquet students. Our students have worked really hard this year and we were so proud to celebrate all that they have done. We are so proud of the good work we have seen. We were also saddened to see some of our amazing faculty retire, but they left the department in good hands. Special thanks to our faculty retirees and all other faculty who do so much for the department and their students.
