On Friday, November 15, the Spanish faculty of the Department of Foreign Languages welcomed eight new students to membership in the Iota Mu chapter of Sigma Delta Pi, the National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society. IUP's chapter was established in 1972.
As part of the celebration, Dr. Lydia Rodríguez offered a lecture entitled, “Rigoberta y yo,” in which she recounted the events surrounding her December 2012 visit to Guatemala to interview the 1992 Nobel Peace Laureate, Dr. Rigoberta Menchú Tum. Following the ceremony, new members decorated two birthday cakes in order to enter a Facebook contest sponsored by the National in celebration of its 94th birthday. ¡Feliz cumple Sigma Delta Pi!
