UDM students inducted into National Jesuit Honor Society

Alpha Sigma Nu history:

Jesuit colleges and universities were not yet coeducational when Alpha Sigma Nu was founded at Marquette University in 1915. The society, known as Alpha Sigma Tau until 1930, spread from Marquette to Creighton University to St. Louis University and to the University of Detroit in its first decade. By 1924, Marquette University had become coeducational and Gamma Pi Epsilon was founded to honor outstanding women. Alpha Sigma Nu and Gamma Pi Epsilon pursued separate but similar paths for almost 50 years, expanding nationally and cooperating on campuses where they existed together. The society born of their merger in 1973 is now open to men and women at the 30 institutions of higher education in the United States, Sogang University in Korea and Regis College Toronto in Canada.

Several of the University’s brightest students were recently inducted into Alpha Sigma Nu, the national Jesuit Honor Society, on April 17. According to Alpha Sigma Nu’s website, this is the highest honor at Jesuit institutions, including all disciplines. Only four percent of students are invited to membership. This includes juniors, seniors and graduate students who are in the top 15 percent of their class and have a demonstrated record of service and loyalty to the Jesuit ideals of education.
