The English Graduate Student Society (EGSS) is a society for the promotion and support of the
English graduate students at FAU.
EGSS organizes an open biannual conference every Fall and Spring semester for those within the
graduate program to showcase their current academic research and writing. A biannual picnic is
also organized for students, alumni, faculty, friends, and family to get together off campus and
welcome incoming English graduate students.
Through these events, EGSS is able to benefit FAU's English graduate program by providing
opportunities for students to share work, experience public reading, sit on a conference panel (a
first for many), and to bring lovers of language together.
