Alpha Sigma Nu honors students who distinguish themselves in scholarship, loyalty to the ideals of Jesuit education, and service to others while attending one of the 28 Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States, Regis and Campion Colleges in Canada, or Sogang University in Seoul, South Korea. Led by Faculty Advisers and student officers, Chapters induct new members and promote the Alpha Sigma Nu tenets and mission on their campuses.
As the only honor society permitted to bear the name Jesuit, a pledge to commit to lifelong pursuit of scholarship, loyalty, and service accompanies induction into the Society. Encouraging Ignatian inspired lifelong leaders is the vision of Alpha Sigma Nu, accomplished through Chapter action, Alumni Club programs, and ΑΣΝ website resources.
Alpha Sigma Nu provides scholarships at all member institutions and administers the prestigious Alpha Sigma Book Awards annually.
