Student Organizations

Sigma Tau Delta is the International English Honor Society; its aim is to foster all aspects of English as a discipline. Phi Sigma, the Georgia Southern chapter, is an active organization that promotes fellowship among English majors and service to the community. We hold bi-weekly meetings and host field trips, parties, and readings; we also engage in community service projects. Please contact one of the two faculty mentors if you’d like to learn more:
Dr. Julia Griffin
Dr. Mary Villeponteaux

Scholars of Religion is a Georgia Southern University student club whose purpose is to study different religions in an effort to end prejudice and bring students together through education. It meets roughly twice a semester for guest speakers or field trips to nearby religious festivals. (Past field trips have included the Shalom Y’all Jewish Food Festival in Savannah and the Ramayana reading at the Hindu Temple Society of Augusta.) For more information or to become involved, please visit the Scholars of Religion Facebook page or contact the faculty mentor:

Phi Sigma Tau is the National Honors Society in Philosophy.  The official chapter at GSU is Chapter Eta. The purpose of PST is to promote interest in philosophy and encourage communication between philosophy departments.  In order to become a member a student must be a philosophy major, have at least 3.00 GPA, and have completed at least two semesters of courses in philosophy. PST members get the undergraduate journal Dialogue, which is published by the National Office, and provides a venue for students to publish their work. For more information please contact Dr. William Eaton at

EELS, the Eagle Elite Literary Society, is a Georgia Southern University club for students interested in literature, regardless of their major.  At present, we need officers, so if you are interested in helping to organize activities such as reading parties, a Scrabble tournament, or if you have ideas of more fun things to do with a group of students who love literature, please contact faculty mentor Dr. Brad Edwards at
