Are you trying to decide when to hold your induction ceremony?
Read below for benefits of having fall induction ceremonies. The Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica leadership created the information below in 2020, but most of the ideas are still good reasons to consider a fall induction.
Remember, no matter the time of year that you hold an induction, students must have already completed at least three semesters of Spanish or Portuguese prior to induction, be currently enrolled in Spanish or Portuguese*, and be a sophomore, junior, or senior.
A fall induction would imply that all students are currently enrolled* in Spanish/Portuguese 3 or higher.
If you have a strong middle school program, a requirement that students must be in level 3 helps avoid the feeling that freshmen are excluded. (Sponsors with freshmen enrolled in level 3 can apply for an exception.)
