Hannah Mistovich was awarded the 2012 Mario Vargas Llosa Award by Sigma Delta Pi (The National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society) and the AATSP (American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese). This was the second time the SDP/AATSP Premio Mario Vargas Llosa is awarded.
In April 2011, our PI XI Chapter was approved for reactivation by the National Organization.
On April 28th, 2011 we held the first ceremony to initiate 14 of our students and 7 Honorary members.
On April 25th, 2012, 16 students were initiated, as well as 4 honorary members.
On May 8th, 2013, 13 students were initiated.
[Pictured: students initiated at the April 2011 ceremony]

If you are a minor, and took one of those courses in the Fall as your last course, you can apply in early Spring once you have a grade in that course.
