Clubs and Organizations

Meeting new people and being exposed to new ideas is an important part of the collegiate experience. Students who are involved in extracurricular activities like university clubs, sports, creative productions and internships report being more satisfied with their university experiences. And it’s not surprising. These outlets provide additional arenas for learning and networking. Moreover, they can serve as a place where likeminded people can come together and students can build professional skills. The English department has several clubs for students to join and explore something new.

The English Club

The English club is a social organization of English majors and minors that brings together students who enjoy reading, writing, and learning.  As a member of the club, you'll get a chance to form personal and professional connections to enrich your experience in the Department.  You don't have to be an English major to participate—only to share our passion for reading, writing, and the humanities. Club members who would also like to join Sigma Tau Delta (the international English honor society) are welcome to apply, but membership in Sigma is not necessary to participate in any of the events that the club organizes.  For more information, contact Dr. Christine Cooper-Rompato, the English Club advisor.

Sigma Tau Delta

Sigma Tau Delta is the  National English Honor Society. It confers distinction upon undergraduate and graduate students and recognizes the accomplishments of professional writers who have contributed to the fields of language and literature. Members have the opportunity to be recognized for their outstanding achievements, enrich their education, and advance their careers through scholarships and publication.  For more information contact chapter advisor Dr. Christine Cooper-Rompato

The Bull Pen

The Bull Pen is the place where creative writers from all over campus gather to talk about writing, share their writing, and learn from artists at work in the world. We meet weekly throughout the semester. In the spring, we sponsor a Slam Poetry Team that performs at Helicon West. Gather with us to share your work, learn from others, and generate new ideas.  Contact John Engler with questions at
