About Us

The Upsilon Sigma branch of Sigma Tau Delta consists of Whittier’s most accomplished students in the Department of English Language & Literature. Students who have completed two upper division English courses and who have a 3.5 GPA in English, are eligible for membership. Eligible students are tapped in English classes at the beginning of each semester.

In addition to activities for its own membership, including an annual Beowulf Reading, Sigma Tau Delta also organizes occasional events for the department or the student body as a whole, and, each spring, coordinates and publishes The Literary Review, a compilation of the year’s best student poetry, short fiction, scholarly writing, and artwork.
