The National German Honor Society, Delta Phi Alpha, seeks to recognize excellence in the study of German and to provide an incentive for higher scholarship. The Society aims to promote the study of the German language, literature and civilization and endeavors to emphasize those aspects of German life and culture which are of universal value and which contribute to man’s eternal search for peace and truth.

Gamma Psi, the local chapter of Delta Phi Alpha, recognizes students who have demonstrated academic excellence and exceptional interest in German language and culture.

Members of Delta Phi Alpha are eligible for the Delta Phi Alpha undergraduate scholarships. Visit the Delta Phi Alpha website for more information.
