Roundtable, sponsored by the English department, is a multi-disciplinary group that meets monthly to discuss literature, philosophy, theater, film, and other creative works. Each meeting is planned and presented by a rotating panel of students and faculty sponsors. Any student, staff, or faculty member who enjoys food, fellowship, and stimulating discussion is invited to participate whenever possible. Roundtable provides opportunities to meet other people with similar interests, a forum for organized discussions of ideas and media, and a spark to light creativity and lifelong learning outside the boundaries of the classroom.
