Sigma Delta Pi

(National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society)


Sigma Delta Pi is a national honors society for advanced students of Spanish. At Ohio University, the Pi Rho chapter organizes events to promote the learning of Spanish and Spanish-speaking cultures around the world. Events include local conferences, conversation hours, and community service opportunities. It is an honor to be a member of Sigma Delta Pi, as it signifies fluency in the Spanish language, involvement in the university community, and leadership skills. Sigma Delta Pi provides the life-long benefit of connections with alumni of the society.

Ohio University’s chapter of Sigma Delta Pi hosts events every semester. Members are required to attend two events per semester, organized by the Department of Modern Languages, Latin American Studies, or any other club or organization relating to Spanish language or culture.
