It is not only the largest foreign language honor society in existence, but it is also one of the very best as attested to by its membership in the Association of College Honor Societies, an accrediting body which demands the maintenance of the highest standards and which has extended its recognition to only two other foreign language societies. The purpose of this society is to honor those who seek and attain excellence in the study of the Spanish language and in the study of the literature and culture of the Spanish speaking peoples; to encourage college and university students to acquire a greater interest in and a deeper understanding of Hispanic culture; to foster friendly relations and mutual respect between the nations of Hispanic speech and those of English speech; and to serve its membership in ways which will contribute to the attainment of the goals and ideals of the society.In order to be a member, students must be a junior and have a minimum of 18 hours of Spanish courses which includes Spanish culture and literature.
