Sigma Tau Delta

Category: Academic

We are the Alpha Rho Chi chapter of Sigma Tau Delta, the International English Honor Society. The Honor Society's goal is to bring together and honor students who have excelled in English language and literature in their college careers. Its other main goals are to provide cultural stimulation on college campuses to promote interest in literature, to foster all aspects of the discipline of English, including literature, language, and writing, and to serve society by fostering literacy. Eligibility for Sigma Tau Delta is based on five factors: 1) You have taken at least 2 college English courses (beyond First-Year Writing). 2) You have maintained a minimum B average in English. 3) You have maintained a minimum B average in overall scholarship. 4) You rank in the top 35% of your class. 5) You have taken at least three semesters of college courses. Fun activities in the works: Having a party where we dress up as our favorite literary character or author; organizing campus-wide readings; pairing up with the Free Association Club to put on a poetry reading; attending a play in the Twin Cities; collaborating with the English department to put on events; and contacting authors/poets to come and present at St. Olaf.
