Showcase Highlights 2015

The English In Action (EIA) Showcase is held at the end of both the fall and spring semesters and provides a forum for students to display the work they have done throughout the semester in their English courses -- from composition and professional writing to literary theory.

Students work alone or in teams to prepare for and present at the Showcase, creating posters, multimedia displays, and interactive activities that visitors are invited to experience during the two-hour long event.

Judges evaluate the work, and the best projects win awards.
