On Friday, September 1st, the members of our chapter of Sigma Tau Delta (the International English Honor Society) hosted an ice cream social for new and returning students. The event was well attended with plenty of students and faculty members enjoying free ice cream with ample toppings. Sigma Tau Delta members Clara Monson, who happens to be the chapter president, and Maddie Malin scooped up the tasty treats for everybody. The event was a great way to celebrate the end of the first week of classes and to get to know people.
