Sigma Tau Delta

Sigma Tau Delta

The University of Wisconsin - River Falls chapter of Sigma Tau Delta is Kappa Sigma.  Sigma Tau Delta is an international honor society for English majors, minors, and qualifying non-majors.

Kappa Sigma (local chapter) is an academic and service organization that

  • Recognizes high achievement of students in English language and literature
  • Promotes interest in literature and the English language across the campus and River Falls community
  • Fosters the discipline in all aspects, including creative and critical thinking

Sigma Tau Delta-Kappa Sigma has brought in poets and writers such as Thomas R. Smith, Robert Schuler, Amy Knox Brown, and John McNally for the Student Reading Series.

Many members work on the annual student publication Prologue. Sigma Tau Delta-Kappa Sigma has raised money for a local charity and for a subscription to Studies in the Novel, a literature journal previously not carried by the UWRF Chalmer Davee Library.

Criteria for membership

  • Achieve and maintain a minimum B or equivalent average in English classes
  • Complete at least three semesters (or five quarters) of college work
  • Complete at least nine credits of English classes beyond the general education courses at UWRF

Associate membership is available to currently enrolled students, undergraduates and graduates, who have the requisite academic background, but who are not majoring or minoring in English. Faculty are also eligible for Associate membership.
