Pre-Sigma Saturday Shout-outs: 11/08/2013
First off, congratulations to our honorary Sigma Tau Delta Halloween contest winners, Abigail and Andrea! Your works were selected from other great submissions for their ability to scare and intrigue (see the above images).
For our trip to Whimsic Alley tomorrow, the club will congregate in the library parking (Lot C) at approximately 9:00 AM. From there, the club will be heading to its destination. Those of you in need of transport may feel free to contact that club's email at firstname.lastname@example.org or the club president at email@example.com. You may also reach us through our Facebook page (see upper right-hand link)!
For other concerns, such as the address and location, feel free to check the club's Google Calendar description in the "Calendar" tab, where you'll find dates, times, and descriptions for our past meetings as well as future events, including the Regional Conference at Cal State Fullerton!

Who are we?
Sigma Tau Delta, the International English Honor Society, was founded in May 1924 at Dakota Wesleyan College in Mitchell, South Dakota, by Professor Judson Q. Owen. 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 also recognizes the accomplishments of professional writers who have contributed to the fields of language and literature.
Cal Poly Pomona's Rho Xi chapter follows in this tradition by striving to create a community between students and faculty. Holding meetings regularly showcases our commitment and drive towards helping fellow students and exposing students to new cultures, literature, passions, ideas and welcoming teachers to do the same. For more information about us as a club, and as individuals, please visit our "About Us" tab.
Keep up with us via weekly website updates or follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest!
Join us at our weekly meetings on Thursdays in Building 24, room 107 from noon to 12:50 p.m.
