Student Organizations

Pi Delta Phi

Our local chapter of Pi Delta Phi (http://www.augie.edu/related/pideltaphi/index.html), the French National Honor Society was founded in 2010. Since its inception at Georgia College, our Xi Upsilon chapter has inducted over one hundred students as lifetime members. Pi Delta Phi was founded at the University of California, Berkeley, in 1906, and was nationalized when the Beta Chapter was established at the University of Southern California in 1925. At the present time, Pi Delta Phi numbers more than 370 chapters established at representative public and private colleges and universities in almost every state. The purpose of this society is to recognize outstanding scholarship in the French language and Francophone literatures.  Our goal is to increase the knowledge and appreciation for the cultural contributions of the French-speaking world and to stimulate and to encourage French and Francophone cultural activities. Membership in Pi Delta Phi is open to all upper-division students who meet the academic requirements of the Society. Follow us on Facebook. For more information, please contact the chapter advisor, Dr. David de Posada (david.deposada@gcsu.edu).

The French Club promotes enthusiasm among students for the French language and culture and to provide students with a friendly but serious way to approach a new language. For lower-division French students at GCSU, the club provides a source of guidance and an opportunity to actually use and experience what is learned in class while developing communication with other students in their area of study. The French Club affects the whole campus through activities such as cheese tastings, pot-luck suppers, and movie nights, and our members participate in International Day, the annual International Dinner, and other global events. For more information, please contact the chapter advisor, Dr. Larbi Oukada, larbi.oukada@gcsu.edu.
