Honor Societies

Alpha Mu Gamma is the nation's largest collegiate foreign language honorary society. It honors outstanding student early in their studies -- typically after the third semester. Students may join CNU's Lambda Pi chapter and then, if they continue their language study, apply to one of the more advanced honors societies if they wish. Alpha Mu Gamma members are also eligible to apply for several scholarships. Please contact Dr. Laura Deiulio at (757) 594-7062 or for more information.

MCLL is proud to host the Nu Upsilon chapter of the French National Honor Society Pi Delta Phi. This society recognizes students who have studied French at the advanced level. Goals of the society include increasing Americans' knowledge of the French-speaking world and sponsoring French and Francophone cultural activities.
