This past year, SKD sponsored the eagLITs Book Club, which meets monthly and is open to all students; attended two plays, “Julius Caesar” at the Chicago Shakespeare Theater in Chicago and “Macbeth” at the Illinois Shakespeare Festival in Bloomington-Normal; and sent a student and faculty advisor to the 2013 SKD International Conference in Portland, Ore.

This year, advisors and officers plan to sponsor fundraisers, charity events (specifically, for the 2nd Hand Ranch and Rescue in Princeton and the Save the Girls Charity), eagLITs, and a field trip to a theatrical performance. SKD also hopes to send more people to the 2014 SKD International Conference in Savannah, Ga.

Meeting dates and times will be posted soon to Blackboard and sent through email.
