About Alpha Sigma Nu

Our Mission

Alpha Sigma Nu, the honor society of Jesuit institutions of higher education, recognizes those students who distinguish themselves in scholarship, loyalty and service. The only honor society permitted to bear the name Jesuit, ΑΣΝ encourages its members to a lifetime pursuit of intellectual development, deepening Ignatian spirituality, service to others, and a commitment to the core principles of Jesuit education.

Our Vision

Alpha Sigma Nu: A dynamic society whose members, honored as students for embodying scholarship, service, and loyalty to the ideals of Jesuit education, embrace Ignatian values as guides and challenges to be collaborators in the Jesuit mission.

Our Purpose
