Meet the Deltans

Meet Glen Brewster

Glen Brewster is Professor of English at Westfield State University, teaching British literature, literary theory, introductions to film, and other courses. He has been Chapter Advisor for twenty years, and on the Sigma Tau Delta Board for ten years, beginning as Eastern Regent. His academic career is a surprise to many who knew him earlier (including himself), since he did not intend to go to college and only did so after several years when his oldest sister registered him for the same course she was taking at a local college (another long story). In retrospect, things turned out pretty well.

  1. My favorite movie is Hugo.
  2. I never leave the house without plenty of reading material.
