Sigma Tau Delta: Opportunities for Graduate Students

The ISU chapter of Sigma Tau Delta, the national English honor society, offers academically excellent graduate students professional, service, and social opportunities. The national organization hosts an annual conference at which members can share their research, two journals where members can publish their scholarly and creative work, and numerous scholarships. The ISU chapter sponsors community and department service projects and regular fellowship events.

The chapter's activities include sponsoring the Department’s year-end Faculty and Student Awards Ceremony, co-sponsoring the Department's annual English Studies Symposium, publishing the annual journal of student research Polyglossia, collecting books and raising money for a local literacy group, sponsoring readings by visiting authors and scholars, planning group trips to plays, sponsoring the annual English Studies at Large Conference; and hosting the annual Live Poets’ Night and Dead Poets’ Night.

Sigma Tau Delta welcomes both undergraduate and graduate students. Graduate students must have at least a 3.3 GPAas well and have completed 9 hours at the graduate level at ISU. New members are initiated into the chapter in the fall and spring.
