German events at Agnes Scott, Honorary Society

Seven ASC German Students Inducted into Delta Phi Alpha

The ASC German Studies Program welcomes seven new members to Delta Phi Alpha, one of the nation’s oldest German Honorary Societies, whose goal it is to

“recognize excellence in the study of German and to provide an incentive for higher scholarship. The Society aims to promote the study of the German language, literature, and civilization and endeavors to emphasize those aspects of German life and culture which are of universal value and which contribute to man’s eternal search for peace and truth.”

We are proud that the following students fulfill these criteria and congratulate them to their achievements:

Khadijah Brown, Jasmine Fisher, Andrea Harris, Kaija Lazda, Lindsay Prescod, Katherine Robinson, and Alexandra Wagner

Thank you to everyone else who attended our end-of-the-semester party in the Luchsinger fireplace lounge last evening. It was a great send-off for the group going to Germany in May and a nice reunion with many students from other German courses and from the Fall 2011 FYS course “Vampires, Monsters, and Robots.”
