Sigma Tau Delta

 

Sigma Tau Delta is the International English Honor Society. Its central purpose is to confer distinction upon outstanding students of the English language and literature in undergraduate, graduate, and professional studies. Sigma Tau Delta sponsors the California Writers Series, which aims to bring California writers to campus on a regular basis, and the Lectures in Language and Linguistics, which aims to bring a California-based linguist and/or language expert to CSUB’s campus every quarter to speak on a given topic and to meet with students and faculty. The society also holds its Annual Induction and Awards Ceremony, where we present the Betty Creative Writing Awards, created to honor the creative work of students at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and the Li’i Pearl Excellence in English Award, which recognizes outstanding graduates of the Department of English.
