Alpha Mu Gamma Information/Recruiting Session
To celebrate Foreign Language Week, Alpha Mu Gamma—the first and largest national collegiate foreign language honor society— and the World Languages Department will be hosting a series of events from Monday, March 3 through Friday, March 7. All week the College cafeteria will feature an international dish for each day of foreign language week.
On Thursday, March 6, faculty memeber Dr. Beatriz Gomez and Alpha Mu Gamma member Katelyn Lyman will be available to explain and answer questions about Alpha Mu Gamma.
Alpha Mu Gamma is the first and largest national collegiate foreign language honor society of the United States. It was established on April 29, 1931 at Los Angeles City College by five members of the College foreign language faculty. These five members recognized the need for a society to honor achievement in all foreign languages at an early stage in the student's career. The interest shown by the other colleges and universities inspired an almost immediate expansion into a national organization. 350 chapters exist in the United States, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. Chapters are found both in state and private universities, four years as well as two years colleges.
