Honor Society

Pi Delta Phi (French)

Pi Delta Phi is the international French honor society for excellence in the French language and French culture. Students who are in their junior or senior year with a 3.0 GPA who have taken at least five French courses, including one in French literature, and have maintained a 3.5 GPA in those courses are invited to join.

The society was founded as a departmental honor society at the University of California, Berkeley, in 1906. After 20 years as a local chapter, Pi Delta Phi declared itself the National French Honor Society in 1925. The Manhattan College chapter, Iota Pi, was established in 1983.
