Phi Sigma Iota Honorary Society

The 2018 Phi Sigma Iota initiation ceremony will be held Friday, April 27 at 4:30 pm in the Benes rooms of HWCC.  It will be held in conjunction with the MFL Awards program and year end department picnic for MFL majors and minors.   

Phi Sigma Iota is an international honor society whose members are selected from among outstanding undergraduate and graduate students of foreign languages and literatures including classics and comparative literature as well as faculties of the institutions honored with a chapter. Its primary objectives are the recognition of remarkable ability and achievement in foreign languages and literatures, and the stimulation of advanced work and individual research in these fields.

The society was founded in 1922 at Allegheny College by Dr. Henry W. Church, members of his Department of Languages, and advanced students who used to meet to discuss linguistic and literary matters. It became a national society when Beta Chapter was established at the Pennsylvania State University in April, 1925, followed less than a year after by Gamma Chapter at the College of Wooster. Iota Xi Chapter was established at Ohio Wesleyan in 1978.
