Sigma Delta Pi

Sigma Delta Pi, the National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society (La Sociedad Nacional Honoraria Hispánica), was established on November 14, 1919, at the University of California, Berkeley. Its insignia is the royal seal of Fernando and Isabel, representing Castilla, León and Aragón. The Society's colors are red and gold and its flower is the red carnation.

The College of Wooster’s chapter, Epsilon of Ohio, founded in 1924, was the fifth national chapter to be founded.
