Honor Societies



Sigma Tau Delta:  The International English Honor Society, Sigma Tau Delta's central purpose is to confer distinction upon students of the English language and literature in undergraduate, graduate, and professional studies. Sigma Tau Delta also recognizes the accomplishments of professional writers who have contributed to the fields of language and literature.  To earn membership in the society, students must possess a minimum of a B or equivalent average in an English major, rank at least in the highest 35 percent of their class in general scholarship, and have completed at least three semesters or five quarters of college work.

Poetry Center:  This center for those with an interest in studying, writing or critiquing poetry offers workshops, readings and a library of selected works.  They are also host to the Poetry Club, which meets every week.


Student Conference on Language and Literature:  The day long annual event allows current students to present their research and writing to an audience of their peers and professors.  It also has departmental alumni who come to share their careers and experiences with the students.
