Psi Delta Chapter Texas Tech University
Welcome to TTU's Psi Delta Chapter of Sigma Tau Delta. Sigma Tau Delta is an international English honor society which is committed to distinguishing students in undergraduate, graduate, and professional studies for their contribution and accomplishments in the fields of English language and literature.
The TTU chapter of Sigma Tau Delta is comprised of students who have academically excelled in English studies. Our chapter is devoted to sharing the importance of English studies with the campus and community through student-initiated service projects, marathon readings, writing workshops, and literary events.
We are proud to be part of TTU's English department!
Membership in Sigma Tau Delta comes with many benefits. These include opportunities for:
- Writing awards
- Student leadership and community service
- Career advancement
Membership in your local chapter of Sigma Tau Delta opens the doors of opportunity and facilitates academic, professional, and personal growth. There are more than 875 active chapters worldwide, each defined by its location and membership, yet bound to the rest by the common goal of promoting excellence in the disciplines of the English language.
Members of every chapter have the opportunity to share their love of literature and linguistics with like-minded peers, participate in rewarding activities, and be recognized for their accomplishments.
Active membership in Sigma Tau Delta is open to undergraduate students who have taken at least two college courses in English language or literature beyond the usual requirements in first-year English and who have at least a 3.0 average in English and overall.
New membership is also open to graduate students who did not hold undergraduate membership, who are enrolled in a graduate program in English or one of its specializations, have completed six semester hours of graduate work or the equivalent, and have a minimum grade point average of 3.3 on a 4.0 scale.
Generally, students apply for membership at the beginning of each semester. The dues for new members include a one-time national fee of $45.00. The one-time fee pays for the new member's honor cords, pin, and certificate.
Sigma Tau Delta is now recruiting new members, including officers. Members and officers work together to develop goals for the chapter and decide what kinds of activities or community service and outreach efforts the chapter should engage in.
