The Alpha Sigma Nu Honor Society of Jesuit Colleges and Universities extends its heartiest congratulations to its new Alpha Sigma Nu inductees. A total of 15 students and one Honoree were inducted at the Alpha Sigma Nu Induction Ceremony on Wednesday, November 29 2023 in Christ the King Chapel. (Three were unable to attend the ceremony: Mary Helen Nowotarski, Nejla Reggero and Haley Welch.)

Alpha Sigma Nu recognizes those students who distinguish themselves in scholarship, loyalty and service. The only honor society permitted to bear the name Jesuit, Alpha Sigma Nu 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. Selection to Alpha Sigma Nu is one of the highest honors awarded to students in the top 15% of the class on a Jesuit campus.
