National Italian Honor Society
Gamma Kappa Alpha recognizes the achievements of students who have devoted much of their undergraduate career to the study of Italian language, literature, and culture. Fourth-year Italian majors who have a GPA of 3.0 or above are invited to become members. The Holy Cross chapter of GKA invites exceptional Italian minors (those with a GPA of 3.5 or above) to join the Society. Students who accept the invitation pay a one-time membership fee of $25. At the initiation ceremony in the spring, they receive a certificate and a honor cord to be worn at Commencement exercises.
