Students in the department of English at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette are active in a number of English-specific organizations. Students in Sigma Tau Delta, for instance, the UL Lafayette branch of the national honors society hold English day, an event designed to reach out to students across the campus. The folklore and rhetoric reading groups meet three to four times a semester to discuss material relevant to their concentrations. The Milena Club is an impromptu group interested in experimental theater.

With over 750 active chapters located in Europe, the Caribbean, and the United States, there are more than 1,000 faculty sponsors, and approximately 8,500 members inducted annually.
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.
