What is Sigma Tau Delta?
Sigma Tau Delta is an international honor society for English
majors and minors. The society seeks to recognize students who excel in their
literary studies and serves both to applaud what students have achieved and
enrich their experience of literary study through local and national events.
What does Sigma Tau
The West Georgia Chapter of Sigma Tau Delta sponsors a number of
activities each year. Specific events depend on the interests of the current
membership but in the past have included theater trips, a literary costume party
at Halloween, informal gatherings at local restaurants, student research
colloquia, career discussions and much more. These activities are only a
starting point: marathon readings, literary film nights, literary debates...it
all depends on what students think would make their time as English majors more
interesting and rewarding.
