The Alpha Sigma Theta chapter of Sigma Tau Delta at the University of New Haven was established in the Spring of 2011. UNH's chapter of Sigma Tau Delta has since participated in events such as World Book Night, where members handed out 100 copies of new books to the campus community. Sigma Tau Delta is composed of both English major and minors who posses a 3.0 grade point average or higher and have completed the required amount of credits. (Learn more about Sigma Tau Delta.) Recently, Sigma Tau Delta was recognized as an official student organization on campus, as well as a "Blue Status Club" under the USGA. The goal of this organization is not only to better the members as English majors and minors, but also to share the love of writing and literature throughout the campus.
