The Villanova Chapter Kappa Nu
The Villanova Chapter Kappa Nu was created in 1990. During the past two decades it has been coordinated by Dr. Waggaman with the help of various student presidents and officers. Over the years, the members of the Chapter have had the opportunity to enjoy listening to interesting lectures by guests speakers.
They have also been engaged in many French cultural activities such as visits to art exhibits at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Barnes Collection. Members have attended performances of plays, musicals, operas as well as concerts of both classical and popular music not to mention dining from crepes and bistro style dishes to an occasional haute cuisine experience along with a lesson in dining etiquette at the Restaurant School of Philadelphia.
The yearly induction ceremony has both a serious and festive component. It is always accompanied by an academic guest speaker, a local professional or a creative performer. It concludes with a reception featuring a buffet of a variety of French delicacies served amidst cordial conversation.
In the year 2006, Kappa Nu celebrated the centennial of Pi Delta Phi by organizing a meeting on campus with the French community living on the Main Line. Members had the opportunity to interact with the local French population.
We look forward to the ongoing dynamic participation of new members as the Society continues its service to American students and French culture!
