Students in the Department of English are active in all aspects of the University through the work of two main associations.
ESS was created in 1997 as a way to bring ULM English students together so that they can share thoughts about literature and engage in literary events. The club organizes fiction/poetry readings, attends literary festivals, and sponsors and edits chapbooks.

Sigma Tau Delta's central purpose is to confer distinction upon students of the English language and literature in undergraduate, graduate, and professional studies. Sigma Tau Delta also recognizes the accomplishments of professional writers who have contributed to the fields of language and literature.
Over the past several years, Sigma Tau Delta has been very active organizing lectures and readings, raising funds and presenting at conferences. Sigma Tau Delta members from ULM have traveled to National conventions in Baton Rouge and San Antonio and this year  plan to attend the national convention in Portland, OR.
