English Club and Honor Society

APT - The English Club

English majors and minors, along with graduate students in the M.A. program in Applied English Studies, are encouraged to join APT, the English Club, which is open to all students who have an interest in English Studies.

The APT club puts on multiple events every semester and meets regularly. APT is a registered club with Student Life, and new e-board members are elected annually. Some recent APT projects include: students vs. faculty trivia night, "bad movie" nights, creating community pop-up libraries, helping make welcome packages for new English students, writing groups, and National Novel Writing Month participation.

APT also serves as the Humboldt chapter of the Sigma Tau Delta International Honor Society (more information below).
