Sigma Tau Delta

Sigma Tau Delta provides English majors an opportunity to interact with others in their major for enjoyment, increased intellectual and aesthetic awareness and a better overall sense of their discipline’s career opportunities. Sigma Tau Delta offers information, publishing opportunities and organized events and activities students can use to fully realize their potential as English majors.

Sigma Tau Delta is the International English Honor Society that strives to foster literacy within society and connect English students with each other and opportunities in their field of study.

Student Contact: Jackie Drake

Meeting Times: monthly, date and time to be determined.

Major events and activities? Our chapter hosts the campus-wide book club, annually attends a convention, and sponsors plays at Marian. We also like to hold pop-up writing workshops around campus.

Why should people join? Sigma Tau Delta is the best place for English majors and minors to get to know others in their field and realize their full career options. Members have opportunities to present and/or publish their original creative or research writing, and they are encouraged to attend readings of poetry and prose together. By participating in book club, members can also get a break from reading heavy textbooks and talk about contemporary, topical literature with others.

Who can join? Potential members need to complete three semesters at Marian, hold a 3.0 GPA overall and in all their English courses, and complete two English courses outside of their required first-year composition classes. Eligible members will be notified.
