Congratulations, Seniors!

After the English Department’s heartfelt virtual send-off on April 30th, we wanted a place to keep in touch and share suggestions with our graduates.

Cheers! from the Senior Celebration on April 30, 2020

What a wonderful send-off! It was such a treat to see so many faces gathered to enjoy the reflections and hopes shared for all of our graduates.

We’ll miss you in our classes, our office hours, and on the couch of our fourth-floor lounge, but we know you’ll continue to thrive, especially as readers and writers.

To that end, in lieu of our traditional senior pub night and graduation-day brunch, the English Department is giving each graduate a gift certificate to a beloved PDX locale you may be missing as much as Palatine Hill: Powell’s City of Books. Keep an eye on your lclark-email inbox!

Please let us know what you choose and share with us a picture of you and your gift.

Unsure what to get? We have some ideas…
