Chapter activities include community and campus service, literacy outreach, social events with faculty, fundraising, literary and academic events. Our quarterly book sales, Buck a Book, create an opportunity for members to interact with faculty and students while recycling books, CDs, DVDs and tapes donated by members and English faculty.
This chapter maintains an Honors Lounge in the Humanities Building where members study, meet, hold meetings and create opportunities for social and academic activities of various kinds. We have about 40 active members each year. Seniors are honored at the departmental recognition ceremony with special Sigma Tau Delta honor cords and are escorted by an honor guard of Sigma Tau Delta marshals.
