Student Clubs and Societies
Language Honor Societies
The Modern Languages and Literature department has chapters of two national honor societies for students demonstrating outstanding work in a language, literature and culture:
- Pi Delta Phi for French
- Sigma Delta Pi for Spanish
In the spring, each society inducts new members in a ceremony and reception that celebrates the respective cultures.
