The Alpha Phi Psi Chapter of Sigma Tau Delta at UNC-Chapel Hill inducted twenty-one new members during the Fall 2018 Induction Ceremony on Thursday, October 25 in the Anne Queen Faculty Commons Room at the Campus Y. Founded in 1924, Sigma Tau Delta is an international organization that recognizes excellence in English and Comparative Literature. The UNC chapter is among the largest of the 880 national chapters and is the University’s only English Honor Society. Only students in the top 35% of their undergraduate class are eligible.
Sigma Tau Delta member, Ashley Marie Stufano values the literary community the Honor Society creates, saying, “The opportunities offered are a bonus but the people are what make [membership] worth it.” There was a ceremony honoring these students for their high achievement in English language, literature, and writing, followed by a reception filled with lively conversation for the inductees, friends, family, and professors from the English and Comparative Literature Department.
