English department students

The students of Northeastern’s English Department are an active and supportive bunch, who have joyously built a nurturing and creative intellectual and social community. Below is how you can get involved!

Sigma Tau Delta

Established as an honor society in 1924 to confer distinction for high achievement in English language, literature, and writing, Sigma Tau Delta is dedicated to fostering literacy and all aspects of the discipline of English. Our department's chapter, Pi Epsilon, gathers most weeks for readings and lively discussions as Literature Lovers open to members and interested students.

Members must meet eligibility guidelines established by the international organization. These students become eligible for opportunities to earn scholarships, publish, and present papers at the annual international conference. Our great students have presented papers in recent years in Charleston, SC, Albuquerque, NM and Minneapolis, MN as well as at regional conferences.
