Academics

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

 

As much as we like to have fun within the chapter, we care deeply about academics. As we always say, we are students first. The GPA requirement for the Gamma Theta chapter is at least a 2.5. To ensure that each member has this goal met, we have a weekly amount of study hours that we have to meet that we easily track on our phones. We also have our major mentor program which divides the sisters depending on what school you are in. This helps other sisters to help each other better from being in the same school as one another and stay in a tight knit group. Also, we have study nights every month with the rest of the sororities on campus to meet others and build Panhellenic relationships. At the end of the semester, whoever has the most improved GPA gets rewarded with a $25.00 gift card to a place of their choice.
