SIGMA TAU DELTA is the International English Honor Society. Sigma Tau Delta's central purpose is to confer distinction upon students of the English language and literature in undergraduate, graduate, and professional studies. Sigma Tau Delta also recognizes the accomplishments of professional writers who have contributed to the fields of language and literature. One of the largest members of the Association of College Honor Societies, Sigma Tau Delta has close to 600 chapters, 700 faculty sponsors, and inducts approximately 7,000 members annually. Our members have the opportunity to be recognized for their outstanding achievements, enrich their education, help them make career choices, and advance their careers. The organization offers many opportunities for its members: stoles and medallions at graduation, scholarships within the US and abroad, and publication as well as presentation possibilities at regional and national levels. The greatest advantage is associating with other Sigma Tau Delta members on the local, regional, national, and international levels who share your interest in literature and the English language (from http://www.english.orgOpens in new window , where further information may be obtained). The Alpha Delta Zeta chapter at CSUF offers many opportunities for academic and civic engagement, including poetry readings, book drives, member meetings, a newsletter with member contributions, and an end-of-the-year reception honoring graduating members.
