 Sigma Tau Delta 



Sigma Tau Delta is the International English Honor Society, founded in 1924 at Dakota Wesleyan University. It is a recognized member of the Association of College Honor Societies. Sigma Tau Delta aims to recognize and encourage high achievement in English studies at every level, provide cultural stimulation, promote all aspects of the English discipline, encourage good behavior and fellowship among its members, and service society through literature. There are more than 750 chapters world-word; Slippery Rock is home to the Eta Delta chapter.

Members at Slippery Rock regularly present at the Pennsylvania Undergraduate English Majors Conference as at the Society’s own international conference.

In addition, students give back to the community through a number of service projects. Eta Delta has been sponsoring a spring-break service project for the last six years, traveling to San Francisco where we work at 826 Valencia, a writing/tutoring center founded by Dave Eggers and located in the Mission District. We work at the center and in area schools working with student writers.

Eta Delta is active in a number of other English Department ventures, including sponsorship and donation to SLAB, The Vagina Monologues, and LUNAFest.
