Sigma Tau Delta

The Decaturian

Collage

Dimensions

The English department sponsors and supports several student organizations. Some of these organizations provide professional development and academic expertise, and others are just for fun.

English students and faculty, if I have missed your organization, please send me an update for inclusion on this web page. Sometimes students form special ad-hoc groups to write poetry together or to promote a series of student readings, etc. If you hear of such a group, please send us information so we can help promote English-related organizations and events.



Sigma Tau Delta/English Club

Several of our students have attended the national Sigma Tau Delta convention and presented at related conferences. Watch for news about this year's Sigma Tau Delta activities.
