A couple times a semester the English Society hosts a Coffee House at the University Club, which happens to be the oldest house in Amherst.  Not only is there coffee (also brownies and cookies that are SO good) but also poetry, short fiction, and acoustic music.
 
I went to the first Coffee House of the year last week.  I’m the worst procrastinator ever, and creative writing unfortunately doesn’t often make it to the top of my list. I like to go to the coffee houses anyway, even though I don’t often have anything to read, because I like going and watching people read their writing.  Plus, I’m an English major, so a lot of my friends and people I know from classes will be there reading.  
 
You don’t have to be a part of the English Society - or even an English major - to attend.  If you’re interested in reading or just listening, you should stop by the next one.  Or just come for the cookies.  Email umassenglishsociety@gmail.com if you’d like to be notified about their events.  

 
The best part about being an honors student is that honors students aren’t just honors students.  They are also students of the humanities, students of science, students of the fine arts.  They are writers and athletes and activists.  Anywhere you go on campus you can find honors students among the brightest and most committed members of any group.  Honors students don’t stay in Goodell - they branch out and do the things about which they are passionate.
 
A lot of wonderful things happen at Commonwealth Honors College.  Pizza and Prof, Weekly Wednesday Workshop, Honors Faculty Lecture Series, social events, service events, educational events.  A lot of wonderful things happen all over campus as well, and honors students participate in all of them.  The coolest part about the honors community is that it overlaps with countless other communities, because honors students are great.
