Two SUNY Oswego students were recently inducted into the university's chapter of Delta Phi Alpha, the National German Honor Society. Marie Parker and Maya Sprague were honored for their outstanding academic achievement in German as well as for their participation in cultural events focusing on German-speaking countries.

The two students share a common interest in the value of studying German at Oswego. Hailing from the Rochester area, Parker is a double major (global and international studies, languages and international trade) with a focus on German and Japanese. She will study in Osnabrück next semester at Oswego’s partner university in Germany. In the long term, she intends to pursue graduate study before working in international relations or as an intelligence analyst. 

Maya Sprague, a wellness studies major with a minor in German, is originally from Oswego. She will also head to Osnabrück in the spring to study abroad as well as to spend more time with her extended family in Germany. After graduation, she plans to work and live in Germany.

Patrick Schultz and Ana Djukic-Cocks of the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures welcomed the new members and thanked them for their dedication to German and its attendant cultures. Shown from left in the photo are Djukic-Cocks, Parker, Sprague and Schultz.
