Vanguard University’s English Department sponsors a local chapter (“Alpha Mu”) of Sigma Tau Delta, the national English Honor Society.


Sigma Tau Delta members maintain a minimum 3.0 GPA and participate in organizing book clubs, poetry slams, community tutoring, and other activities. One-time fee of $58 is for lifetime membership and comes with a Sigma Tau Delta certificate, free subscription to the honor society journal, an honor medallion, and scarlet & black cords.


Members can also apply for $1,000 to $4,000 in national scholarships and awards, present at a national convention, plus submit their papers and creative works to two journals, the Sigma Tau Delta Rectangle and the Sigma Tau Delta Review.  Campus chapters also sponsor English Honor Society activities.
