Eight Columbia College students nominated for National Italian Honor Society membership

Thursday, May 8, 2014

On May 6, 2014, eight Columbia College students were honored at an induction ceremony in honor of their nominations for membership in Gamma Kappa Alpha, the National Italian Honor Society, which encourages college students to acquire a greater interest in and a deeper understanding of Italian culture, art and history. Gamma Kappa Alpha, whose initials signify “Knowledge and Virtue,” has local chapters at 87 institutions of higher learning across the United States and Canada. The students, chosen because of  their superior scholastic performance in the field of Italian language, literature and culture, represent a record number of inductees for Columbia since the chapter was first established in the 1990s — a testament to the vibrancy of Italian studies at the university, with its 693 course enrollments this year. 

Congratulations to the College’s 2014 Gamma Kappa Alpha inductees:
