Alpha Psi Omega-Pi Upsilon National Theatre Honor Society

APO Logo

The Alpha Psi Omega (APO) National Theatre Honor Society was reactivated in the spring of 1993 by members of the Tech Players and faculty advisor Mark Creter. Current members invite interested students to become active in theatre at Tennessee Tech. 

APO differs from the Tech Players in that actors, technicians and front-of-house personnel will be invited to join the cast of APO if they have strong grades and show a true commitment to the theatre. For further information about Alpha Psi Omega, please contact the faculty advisor or visit the Backdoor Playhouse website.

Sigma Tau Delta

Sigma Tau Delta LogoSigma Tau Delta is the international English Honor Society. The Tau Zeta chapter was founded at Tennessee Tech in 1957, and its current mission is to help foster community for all scholars of English at Tech. It sponsors the English Club, organizing events throughout the year to facilitate connections between majors and non-majors, and faculty and students. The group traditionally meets once a month, usually the first Tuesday during dead hour. Sigma Tau Delta membership is contingent upon a high GPA in both general coursework and upper-division English classes, as well as junior standing at the university. Interested students should contact the faculty advisor for more information.
