Sigma Tau Delta

Sigma Tau Delta, the international English Honor Society, is open to high achieving students majoring in English, English Education, and Writing. The Alpha Pi Chi chapter at Buffalo State was founded in 2009, and offers students opportunities for social and academic programming, service, and fundraising.

The activities are decided by students in the chapter, and any student majoring in any area of the department is welcome to join in chapter activities and events.
