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 Delta Rho chapter asks for a minimum GPA of 2.7, though most of our sisters strive for higher! Out of all the Greek organizations on our campus, our sorority has the highest average GPA. Most of our sisters are members of more than one of the nationally recognized honor societies on the Chowan University campus, and two-thirds of our sisters are members of the honors college. We hold voluntary study halls each week to help/tutor each other in subject’s others may have trouble in. We are constantly challenging each other to strive to be our very best!
