National French Honor Society
The University of Montevallo’s Lambda Chapter of Pi Delta Phi was founded in 1936.
The Lambda Chapter has an Initiation Ceremony every academic year. Chapter members organize various activities to promote cultural activities.
This category includes undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in a degree program at the sponsoring institution who shall be nominated in recognition of their academic achievement in at least one semester of upper-division French (i.e. beyond the intermediate-level series of courses). Candidates for Regular membership shall be of at least sophomore standing with a minimum grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale in French courses, a minimum overall grade point average of 2.8 on a 4.0 scale, and rank in the top 35% of their class.
Students from neighboring institutions who take French courses at the sponsoring institution are not eligible for regular membership, but may be nominated for honorary membership.
