Welcome to Sigma Tau Delta's Orgsync page!

Sigma Tau Delta is the international English Honor Society at Florida International University. Our organization aims to unite students from all fields through their love of literature. We are a group that believes literature is not only essential to society, but also that sincerity, truth, and design are all vital components of a successful academic career. With these firm bonds and perspectives shared between our members, we seek nothing more than to discover how to leave our own marks upon the world through writing. As Walt Whitman wrote, "The powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse". What will your verse be?

Any FIU student with an interest in English is welcome and encouraged to join. We encourage academic excellence and host a variety of lectures, but also enjoy social events such as English teas, games, movies, and open-mic poetry nights.
