• We offer our students numerous opportunities in the discipline, ranging from discipline-related work experience, such as serving as a Language Cafe host or Writing Center tutor, to honor societies in English, French, and Spanish. You can see what both our faculty and students have been doing recently on the News and Events page.

    Sigma Tau Delta (International English Honor Society)
    In addition to membership in the international organization—which provides opportunities for scholarships, publication, and attendance at the national convention—our chapter is one of the more active. We host an annual Symposium where students present their critical and creative works. There are several workshops throughout the year to help students learn about graduate school and job searching. We have a wide variety of social events throughout the year, including an annual Halloween party, where students (and faculty) dress as their favorite character, author, or idea. Several students attend the annual national convention and present their work there. Overall, we celebrate the intellectual and social benefits of the English discipline.
