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.

Sigma Tau Delta

USU's chapter of 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 Shane Graham at

The Bull Pen
