Induction Ceremony

Thank you to everyone who came out to our induction ceremony last night! Without your participation, it would not have been so much fun!

Unfortunately, I forgot my camera at home and couldnt document the event. If anyone has photos of the ceremony, send them my way and I will post them to the blog. Its Sigma Tau Delta history!

Upcoming events:

7 November 2008- Welcome New Members and Discuss Ideas
2:00pm Senate Chambers, Across from Coyote Jacks

Miami Book Fair

Hey Everyone,If you would like to volunteer for the Miami Book Fair, you must register individually. I have chosen a few different times and dates, but I would like for us to all try to go together. Art Speigleman will be there on Saturday and Sunday, 11-3 both days. Salman Rushdie will be there Sunday between 4-8.
Go to www.miamibookfair.comcreate a volunteer accountwhen asked what position you would like to volunteer for choose "English Author Escort"then choose the times I have posted above.I was pointed in the wrong direction initially about applying for the Comix Gallery.

I have been told that if we would like to work closely with either author, our best bet will be to do the escort, as volunteering for Comix Gallery is solely prep work for the event being planned.

If you have any questions, just send me an email.

We will try to talk more about this at our next meetingNovember 7, 2008 @ 2:00pm in the Senate Chambers.

If you sign up, please contact me so that we can get a carpool going.Thanks everyone!

Hey everyone!

If you would like to purchase honor chords, please email with your full name and phone number. When the honor chords arrive, further arrangements can be made to pick them up. The deadline for ordering will be November 7, 2008.

We are currently working on an issue brought to our attention by one of our members, Nicole. She noticed at last semester's graduation that Sigma Tau Delta members were not recognized for their service/achievements/ etc. We are working hard to make sure that by this December, all members representing Sigma Tau Delta on graduation day will be recognized upon walking across the stage.
