Sigma Tau Delta


Chartered in 1928, the Columbia College Iota Beta chapter of Sigma Tau Delta, the English Honor Society, has played an integral role in building community among our students of English and providing them with opportunities for leadership and recognition. Each year English majors and minors who meet eligibility requirements are invited to join the Society, and over the years hundreds of young women have become members of Sigma Tau Delta.

Members of Sigma Tau Delta are recognized as leaders within the English program, and, along with members of the English Majors Society, participate in a variety of programs and social activities. Many have presented papers at the annual Sigma Tau Delta conference, and the Iota Beta chapter has become known at a national level for its consistent and outstanding participation in the annual conference. Members of Sigma Tau Delta are also eligible for scholarships and internship opportunities offered by the national organization.
