The Great English Bake Off

Every Friday, faculty members in the English department host "The Great English Bake Off," a fun spin on PBS’s “The Great British Baking Show.” “Once we were all vaccinated, we decided to do this as a community building opportunity for our department and others throughout the building,” says English Department Chair Mrs. Elaine Mueller.
The Great English Bake Off began at the end of March and features a themed baking challenge each week. The best part? “We invite friends and faculty and staff from other departments to stop by and we award a Star Baker Award,” adds Mueller. 

Congrats to these multi-talented faculty members and amateur bakers!
