Celebrating Summer Success!

It’s been a productive academic year (2021-2022) for UCA English. So, we’re taking a moment to celebrate the fruits of our labors.




We had a great time on the Friday of finals week at Conway’s own Zaza’s restaurant. We celebrated the storied careers of Dr. Michael Schaefer, Dr. Conrad Schumaker, and Dr. Raymond Frontain. They will be sorely missed. May their next chapters be wonderful!

We also celebrated our graduates! A hearty cheer for our 20 BA in English students and our three MA in English students who earned diplomas this spring.
