Pi Delta Phi, the national French Honor Society, seeks to recognize outstanding scholarship in the French language and its literatures. Pi Delta Phi aims to increase American knowledge and appreciation for the cultural contributions of the French-speaking world while also stimulating and encouraging French and francophone cultural activities.
The 364th chapter of the Pi Delta Phi National French Honor Society--Omicron Epsilon--was installed on 24 April 2012 at The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C.
