What We Do
The Rho Xi chapter of Sigma Tau Delta provides students with opportunities for advancing the study of language and literature, developing skills in creative and analytical writing, and for meeting other scholars and professionals in the discipline. Student members may receive international recognition through academic scholarships, professional internships, and teaching awards.
Teachers are invited to come and talk with students in a more informal setting presenting papers written for conferences, sections of their published books and even outside texts not normally covered in classes. Meetings are themed around specific genres, authors, book-based movies, and more. Writing contests, held once a quarter, give students the opportunity to write creatively outside of the academic realm and prizes are awarded to the winners. We also have our annual literature magazine, Portfolio, featuring texts from students and teachers. These opportunities for communication, creativity and external learning allow for a strong social network that leads to strong bonds and great opportunities.
