On Friday, April 27, three students in the class of 2019 were inducted into the Saint Anselm College Kappa Epsilon Chapter of Pi Delta Phi, the National French Honor Society, for the 2017-2018 academic year.

The three students are:
Jenna Bisbee, International Relations major
Sarah Hummel, History major
Meghan Schmitt, Communication major

To be considered for membership in Pi Delta Phi, students must have a 3.0 GPA (both overall and in their French studies), complete at least one upper-division French course, and rank in the top 35% of their class.

Pi Delta Phi, founded in 1906 at the University of California Berkeley, serves to recognize outstanding scholarship in the French language and Francophone literatures, to increase the knowledge and appreciation of Americans for the cultural contributions of the French-speaking world, and to stimulate and to encourage French and francophone cultural activities. There are more than 370 chapters in the United States.

During the ceremony in the college’s Language Resource Center, inductees were presented with certificate and pin. A small reception followed.
