In 2015, the SCU chapter of Sigma Tau Delta  welcomed 19 new members to its group; they range from high sophomores to seniors.  The chapter celebrates the three members—junior Natalie Grazian and seniors Sabine Hoskinson and Jacob Wilbers—who represented SCU at the annual convention, held in Albuquerque, NM March 18-22, 2015.  Sabine read a piece of creative nonfiction: “Floating in the Mediterranean”; Jacob read “Colored Vision: Identity in DeLillo’s White Noise”; and Natalie read “The Upside to Nightmares.”  They also enjoyed attending talks by convention speakers Gary Soto and Leslie Marmon Silko.  Next year’s officers—Natalie Grazian, President; Helena Isabella Alfajora, Vice-President; and Joseph Sanfilippo, Teasurer—are looking forward to next year’s convention March 2-5, 2016, in Minneapolis MN with its theme “Finding Home.”
