Spanish and International Studies Student Activities

Mount Mary University encourages Spanish majors to participate in student clubs and organizations, such as the Alpha Mu Gamma honor society and the International Student Club.

Alpha Mu Gamma Honor Society

Alpha Mu Gamma is the national collegiate honor society for foreign language students. Unlike other national language honor societies, Alpha Mu Gamma represents students studying all world languages. To qualify for membership in Mount Mary’s Alpha Omega chapter, you must hold an A or A/B average in at least two college-level courses in the same language and have an overall GPA of 3.0.

For more information on Alpha Mu Gamma, contact Mary Ellen Kohn-Buday, faculty adviser for the society.

International Student Club

This club welcomes international students and students from the United States. The club promotes understanding of languages and various cultures of the world. Activities include enrichment trips, social gatherings and orientation for new international students.

Group members also take on leadership roles to coordinate field trips or raise fund for local Hispanic organizations and participate in Students Achieving Leadership through Spanish Activities (SALSA).

Contact Antje Streckel, staff adviser, at streckea@mtmary.edu for more information on joining this club.

Students Achieving Leadership through Spanish Activities (SALSA)

SALSA’s purpose is to serve as a support group for Latina and non-Latina students and to promote cross-cultural understanding of the Latino culture. Contact Maribel Rivera, staff adviser, at riveram@mtmary.edu for more information on joining this club.
