Congratulations to Claudia McCarron, whose essay “The Revelation to Jane:  Christianity and Apocalypse in Jane Eyre” was published in the 2019 volume of the Sigma Tau Delta Review! This essay grew out of a paper Claudia wrote for Dr. Hanrahan’s ENGL402 (The Bible as Literature) class. We are very proud of Claudia, the first Shepherd student to be published in the Review!

The next meeting of Shepherd University’s Stammtisch (German-speaking conversation group) will be on Tuesday, February 19th. The group will gather at The Blue Moon at 4:00 p.m. Speakers at all levels of proficiency, beginners to natives, are welcome. For more information, contact Dr. Eva Suárez (

Six Shepherd students have had their work accepted for presentation at the Sigma Tau Delta International Convention in St. Louis in March. The students are Katharine Hardy, Gabrielle Hersey, Sarah Markle, Alex McCarron, Claudia McCarron, and Lilli Sutton. Way to go women!
