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 115 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
Alpha Sigma Tau women strive to achieve their highest academic potential and are encouraged to focus on their academic achievement. Strong scholarship and success in academics correlate with chapter achievement and development. The sisters can often be found studying together in Kresge Library, as well as other places on campus.
In addition, the Alpha Sigma Tau National Foundation provides collegiate and alumnae members of the sorority with the opportunity to apply for over 30 academic scholarships to support their educational endeavors. Each year more scholarships are funded by the sorority, chapter alumnae, and individual members to assist our members.
