Where Brilliance Belongs

Delaware Valley Mensa is a part of [American Mensa] Region 2, the Middle Atlantic region of the United States, covering Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.

Mensa is an international society whose only qualification for membership is a score in the top 2 percent of the general population on a standardized intelligence test. The word mensa means "table" in Latin; similarly, mens means "mind" and mensis means "month." The name "Mensa" is reminiscent of "mind, table, month," which suggests a monthly meeting of great minds around a table.
