Sigma Tau Delta
The Alpha Sigma Epsilon chapter of Sigma Tau Delta, the international English Honor Society, was founded at Misericordia in 2010. Our chapter combines academic success with community service: students must have a 3.2 GPA in the English major/minor and a 3.0 GPA overall; they are also required to participate in service activities for the community. Past service projects include collecting over 1400 books for flooded local libraries (2011) and raising money to purchase 1200 dictionaries for the Wilkes-Barre School District (2013--2015).
Students can apply for membership after they have completed 3 semesters of college course work and have completed at least 2 English courses beyond the core requirements. Applications are accepted in the Fall (by September 30th) and Spring (by January 30th). For more information, please contact the chapter advisor, Dr. Patrick Hamilton.
