In the 2017-2018 year, AUT hosted its first comedy-night fundraiser, opened a new Little Free Library in Millett Hall, launched our Friday Afternoon Club, hosted a pop-up colloquium with the critic and writer Thomas Heise, and inducted 20 new members into the Society. AUT is on hiatus until Fall 2018, but stay tuned for some exciting things we have planned for next year.

Alpha Upsilon Tau is Wright State University’s chapter of Sigma Tau Delta. Sigma Tau Delta was founded in 1924 in order to confer distinction to those students who had high achievements in English language, literatures, and writings as well as to foster literacy and all aspects of the discipline of English. With over 850 chapters in colleges and universities across the U.S. and abroad, Sigma Tau Delta is the most active honors organization in our field and one of the largest members of the Association of College Honors Society.

Membership is prestigious and there are many benefits for students who are affiliated with Sigma Tau delta: thousands of dollars in scholarship and award opportunities, regional and national conferences, and internship and publication possibilities. Students selected to present at Sigma Tau Delta’s annual spring convention also have the opportunity to attend presentations and workshops held by authors such as Neil Gaiman, Ursula Le Guin, and Natasha Tretheway, to name just a few.
