“The reality dawned on me that I was surrounded by people who respected each other, what they had written, and whose questions were meant not to puncture, but to probe." Read complete story.

Open Mic

Wednesday Night

Join the Student Leaders for Open Mic Night. Step up to the mic and share your original works with an appreciative audience, or just come to hear some truly creative pieces.

Student Leadership Workshop

Thursday, March 21

Would you like to share your successful and not-so-successful ways to retain and recruit members? Are you stumped on how to connect with other chapters in your region? Do you have some great ideas to share about becoming a successful chapter? If you've answered "yes!" to any of these questions, the Student Leadership Workshop is a valuable resource for you and your chapter.

Informal Regional Caucuses

Thursday, March 21

Meet with your elected regional representatives one on one. Learn what is going on in your region, meet the candidates for regional office (or decide to run yourself), network with other chapters, and have a chance to give your input. Those interested in running for office or who would like more information about upcoming elections please email Allie Reznik at sigmatd.sa2@gmail.com.

Dry T-shirt and Bad Poetry Contest

Thursday Night, March 21

Get ready for some side-splitting fun as chapters with shirts to sell promote them with funny skits. Props and costumes are encouraged. After that, convention attendees bring you the best and worst in bad poetry. Think the love poem you wrote in third grade is worse than Vogon poetry? Enter it in the competition and you might just win a prize.

General Business Meeting and Regional Caucuses

Friday, March 22

Don’t miss this opportunity to participate on the regional and Society levels of Sigma Tau Delta. The General Business Meeting and Regional Caucuses are where our chapters elect Sigma Tau Delta’s next generation of leaders. To encourage your chapter to participate, every chapter with an official voting student delegate present at 1) the General Business Meeting (Friday), and 2) the chapter's Regional Caucus (Friday) is eligible to receive a $200 reimbursement ($400 for non-continental U.S. chapters).
