The National Spanish Honor Society

Spanish Honor SocietySigma Delta Pi is the National Spanish Honor Society. Founded in 1919, it is the oldest foreign language honor society in the nation. (It is also the largest). Drury's chapter was chartered in 1971.

Membership is given to those who have had at least three years or 18 hours of College Spanish classes, including at least one course in Hispanic Literature or Culture. Candidates must have a minimum 3.0 grade point average.

Membership shows a student's committment to and love of the Hispanic language and culture, and also affords the opportunity to apply for one of numerous scholarships for study abroad that the National Society awards every year.

On campus, Sigma Delta Pi organizes events such as dinners, Spanish Movie Nights and Spanish Game Nights.
