Alpha Mu Gamma - The National Foreign Language Honor Society, Nu Alpha Chapter at College of DuPage

Alpha Mu Gamma is the National Collegiate Foreign Language Honor Society of the United States, founded in 1931. More than 300 charters have been granted to chapters in the United States, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. Chapters are found both in state and private universities, and in public and private two- and four-year colleges.

Alpha Mu Gamma has as its primary purpose the honoring of students for outstanding achievement early in their college foreign language studies. However, students may be admitted at any stage of their college careers. Upon initiation, a member receives a parchment certificate of membership and may wear the scroll-shaped gold pin or key.

Activities of the society are: publication of the quarterly newsletter; biennial national conventions, at which students are able to meet others who share their interest in foreign languages; Nu Alpha chapter meetings and special chapter activities of every sort; and the sponsorship of National Foreign Language Week.

Applicants must have a 3.0 Overall Grade Point Average and have earned 2 A's in one foreign language.
