Sigma Delta Pi

Students focusing in Spanish who excel in their studies are eligible for membership in Psi Eta – Presbyterian College’s chapter of Sigma Delta Pi, the National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society.

Sigma Delta Pi, the National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society (La Sociedad Nacional Honoraria Hispánica), was established on November 14, 1919, at the University of California at Berkeley. The Society’s insignia is the royal seal of Fernando and Isabel, representing Castille, León and Aragón. Sigma Delta Pi’s colors are red and gold, its flower is the red carnation, and its motto is the Greek phrase “Spanías Didagéi Proágomen” meaning “Let’s go forth/continue forth under the teaching/guidance of the Spanish language.”

The Psi Eta chapter of Sigma Delta Pi was established at Presbyterian College in 2009. Dr. Sharon E. Knight (seknight@presby.edu) is faculty advisor for the chapter.
