Christy Harasimowicz won a SUNY-wide contest for her essay "Samuel Richardson's Pamela; or, Virtue Rewarded: Justification of Masculine Activity and the Avenue to Virtue." The contest, sponsored by Gale Cengage, was open to essays using the digital resource Eighteenth-Century Collections Online (ECCO), a searchable research database that contains the full text of most eighteenth-century books published in English. It was open to both graduate and undergraduate students across the SUNY system, and Harasimowicz won the undergraduate contest for ECCO.

An Open Letter to the English Majors
We are pleased to be one of the largest departments in our division and offer a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science in English and English Education.
We have nearly 200 majors in English and several hundred Education majors with an English concentration. In addition to teaching, students with a major or minor can prepare for graduate school, the practice of law, business, publishing, administration, communications, and public service. This is an exciting time to study literature and writing as we have recently expanded our offerings in ethnic studies, environmental writing, world literature and contemporary criticism. Our graduates are uniquely well-prepared to contribute to an expanding global culture.
