Sigma Tau Delta Honor Society
Mercyhurst College is proud to have a chapter of Sigma Tau Delta, a national honor society formed in 1924 to recognize graduate and undergraduate English majors, minors, or faculty who have achieved high standards of excellence in their chosen linguistic or literary fields. The Beta Upsilon chapter of Sigma Tau Delta was established at Mercyhurst College in February of 1986, and has recently seen an increase in membership. Candidates are selected by the English department and student advisors during the spring term each year. Induction ceremonies are held each fall.
