Sigma Tau Delta was established in 1924 at Dakota Wesleyan University to recognize “high achievement in English language and literature studies … and to foster the discipline of English in all its aspects, including creative and critical writing.” Greensboro College’s chapter was established in 1995.

To qualify for induction, undergraduate students must have completed at least two college courses in English language or literature beyond the usual requirements in freshman English. The candidate must have a minimum of a B or equivalent average in English and in general scholarship, must rank at least in the highest 35 percent of his/her class, and must have completed at least three semesters or five quarters of college course work.

Greensboro College provides a liberal arts education grounded in the traditions of the United Methodist Church and fosters the intellectual, social, and, spiritual development of all students while supporting their individual needs.

Founded in 1838 and located in downtown Greensboro, the college enrolls about 1,000 students from 29 states and territories, the District of Columbia, and seven foreign countries in its undergraduate liberal-arts program and six master’s degree programs. In addition to rigorous academics and a well-supported Honors program, the school features a 17-sport NCAA Division III athletic program and dozens of service and recreational opportunities.
