Pi Delta Phi, the national French honor society, was formed in
1925 in order to recognize outstanding scholarship in French
language and its literatures, to increase the knowledge and
appreciation of Americans for the cultural contributions of the
French-speaking world, and to stimulate and encourage French and
Francophone cultural activities.
The Delta pi Chapter at St. John’s inducts students in the
spring. Membership is open to students who have taken at least

2050C level, have a 3.5 average in their French courses, and a 3.0
