ISU’s Chapter of Sigma Delta Pi, the National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society, was selected co-recipient of the prestigious Ignacio and Sophie Galbis Award, for activities realized during the academic year. In addition, for the 3rd consecutive year ISU enjoys the distinction of “Honor Chapter.” Professor Angela Bailey de las Heras, ISU’s chapter adviser, was instrumental in earning this national honor that was awarded to only 12 chapters nationwide in 2015.
LAN’s Professor of Japanese Roger Thomas was featured on WGLT’s Poetry Radio. Here is a link to the Poetry Radio podcast, in which he reads some Japanese poetry and their English translations.
