Delta Phi Alpha @ NC State

German Honorary Society


We are the NC State chapter of Delta Phi Alpha, the National German Honorary Society. The student society is open to everyone who is interested in the German language and culture, has studied the German language for at least two years, and maintains a B- overall GPA and a B+ GPA for German classes. 


We initiate new members once a year, usually in the second week after spring break. Faculty Adviser Dr. Lutz Kube presents new member Abby August with her certificate. 

Our Activities

Our chapter is very active. We run a biweekly Kaffeeklatsch for anybody interested in German conversation, screen German movies weekly, offer tutoring for students of German, participate in campus events such as Campus Connection, and organize social events such as Schnitzelfest, Christmas party, and a picnic.
