Congratulations to Alpha Sigma Nu Inductees!
Each year Alpha Sigma Nu, the honor society of Jesuit institutions of higher education, recognizes students who have distinguished themselves in scholarship, loyalty to the values of Jesuit education, and service. Membership into Alpha Sigma Nu is one of the highest honors one can achieve at a Jesuit institution and only 4% of each class is able to be inducted each year.
