Those of us who teach English at Penn Valley welcome you and hope that this site will help you find information you need to decide what courses you want to take and answer other questions you might have about the English Department.

The Course Info page has brief descriptions of the most commonly taught English courses. You can even read the entire Student Composition Handbook on this site. This handbook is required reading for all composition courses and will provide an excellent introduction for students who simply want to know more about the composition courses at Penn Valley.

On the faculty pages you will find brief biographical sketches of each of the full time instructors, as well as telephone and email information for all full time faculty members. Feel free to write any of us with general questions, or call the Humanities Division Office at 604-4272, or just stop by during daytime hours. Both the Humanities Office and most English instructors are in the ST 302 office complex.

English Computer Lab: Look for the computer lab in HU 207. The lab is designed for both classroom use and as an open lab for students currently in English courses. Generally, the lab is reserved for classes in the mornings and is available for walk-in work in the afternoons. Note that this is not an open lab: you must be in an English class and a faculty member or lab monitor must be in the lab at all times.
