Sigma Delta Pi

Sigma Delta Pi Logo

Sigma Delta Pi, the National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society, was founded in 1919 to honor those who attain excellence in the study of the language, literatures, and cultures of Spanish-speaking peoples. It currently has over 500 chapters throughout the United States. The Society's colors are red and gold and its flower is the red carnation. The Delta Upsilon chapter was established at Butler in 1960. Our chapter traditionally holds one initiation ceremony per school year. Membership dues are paid once for life-time membership in the society. New members receive the society's honor cord (which may be worn at the graduation ceremony), membership pin, and hand-lettered certificate.
