At Presbyterian College, students have a number of opportunities for learning and growth outside of the classroom.
What English program would be complete without a visit from an established author? Every year, the English department invites published writers to come speak with students, sit in on classes, and give a public reading. Often, the Sigma Tau Delta book discussions are of works from our visiting authors; Sigma Tau Delta provides to students free copies of such books to help facilitate more active and involved conversations.
Presbyterian College is proud to host a chapter of Sigma Tau Delta, the international English honor society, on campus.
College Writing Awards
Presbyterian College has two writing-based awards: the Freshman Writing Award and the Creative Writing Award. Both began in 2008 and offer monetary awards to the winners.
The Presbyterian College English Department organizes Maymester trips to a variety of international locations such as Berlin, China, England, France, Ireland, and Prague.
A number of our English majors and minors work in our Writing Center. Tutoring other students is a great opportunity to work with people and further develop your own writing. In the Writing Center, students participate in one-on-one writing conferences to bolster students’ writing skills, as well as help them improve their essays.
