Production standards for The TORCH require that we include only the sharpest photos available. When taking photos, always use a flash indoors. Set your camera to the highest setting with the least compression (photos need to be at least 8″ wide and at least 150 dpi, usually over 1MB in file size). Do not edit or alter your images before sending; we need the original, unprocessed/unfiltered file (we cannot accept images downloaded from social media sites like Facebook or Instagram). If using a phone camera, send the original file directly from your device without compressing or optimizing. Our production team will handle all color corrections, lightening, cropping, etc.


The TORCH is an educational journal published semiannually in the Spring and Fall from the Sigma Delta Tau National Headquarters. Contained in the publication are: collegiate chapter reports, alumnae news, information on national programs and meetings, individual member features, Foundation updates, award recipients, current issues concerning campus life, women’s health, and much, much more!
