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
The Trine University chapter of Alpha Sigma Tau values the academic ideals of each of our sisters first and foremost. The chapter understands that our sisters are at Trine for their professional careers above all else. If an academic obligation ever conflicts with a sorority obligation, our local bylaws acknowledge that any academic obligation takes precedence over any sorority event.
In addition, the sisters of the Epsilon Kappa Chapter strive for their sisters to succeed, and we are willing to help them reach that success. We in state a weekly academic study goal sheet for sisters to analyze their strengths and weaknesses throughout their curriculum. If any concerns are provided on this academic form, other sisters are quick to aid the struggling sister with additional one-on-one or group study sessions.
Though we love to spend time with all of our sisters, we here at Alpha Sigma Tau acknowledge that nothing is more important than your education here at Trine University and future career.
