Five members of the English Club traveled to Pittsburgh in March, 2011 to attend and present at Sigma Tau Delta's
Annual Conference. Here are some photos from their trip and some of their thoughts about the experience:

"Having the opportunity to meet people from all across the
world was an amazing experience."

"I learned at the STD conference that for every wild, wacky,
and crazy idea that I have, there is at least one other person out there who thinks the same way. I also learned that bad poetry can be very good! The most important thing I learned, though, is that it is possible to be a successful, famous writer, and you truly can write about anything."
