Students in Luther's English classes often are invited to their teachers' homes for dinner or dessert, sometimes to have a final discussion and sometimes to view a film and share some popcorn. Creative writing classes gather to perform spoken word poetry, and sometimes to face off in Decorah's poetry slams. The English Department sponsors an annual post-baccalaureate reception for seniors and their parents at one department member's home. Elsewhere on the departmental site you can find photos of our annual picnics and Christmas parties. The photos on this page capture some of those events and moments. Click on the first photos and follow the arrows through the slide show.
