Academics are very important at Alpha Sigma Tau. The Sorority believes that academic achievement and strong scholarship are not only a part of sorority life, but are directly tied to a strong Sisterhood experience for each individual member and her chapter.
From our earliest days, Alpha Sigma Tau has been committed to what our Founders called “true scholarship.” In fact, a focus on education has been a staple of Alpha Sigma Tau’s history and Ritual for more than 119 years!
Invitations to join Alpha Sigma Tau are based in part on academic performance. Each potential new member must have a minimum 2.5 GPA before a chapter can consider her for membership – and some chapters have higher minimum GPA requirements. Nationally, our average GPA is just over 3.0
We strive our best to earn the best grades and highest GPAs that we can, and we encourage each other to succeed every day. With a cumulative GPA of over 3.2, it's clear that we truly strive for academic success. Recently our chapter adopted a 2.7 minimum GPA requirement/standard for our active sisters and new members.
In order to support each other, we work together in study rooms and have a tutoring program in which sisters offer to tutor other sisters. Women who earn a 4.0 for the semester are honored with a Certificate of Achievement and a "scholarship dangle" to wear on their badge. Check out our social media for our campaign that honors sisters we call "Smarty Taus." We love to motive and encourage each other to be the best we can be, and we reward academic achievement!
Majors and Career Network
