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.
