Sigma Delta Pi, 96 Years Old and Counting!

ruth barnesSigma Delta Pi, the Spanish Honor Society to which we induct our students every year recently celebrated its 96th year of existence. Founded on the campus of UC Berkeley, the organization has promoted Spanish-language culture for generations. Its motto, “Spanías Didagéi Proágomen” meaning “Let’s go forth under the teaching of the Spanish language” has a clear resonance for all the inductees past and present in our department. For a fascinating glimpse into the organization’s early history, please follow the link below.
