Academic Honors for Students in Jesuit Higher Education


Alpha Sigma Nu (ASN) is the national honor society of Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States. The society was founded in 1915 at Marquette University to honor a select number of students each year on the basis of scholarship, loyalty, and service.

In 1973, ASN merged with Gamma Pi Epsilon and now has active chapters on all 30 Jesuit campuses and theologates in the United States, as well as at Sogang University in Seoul, Korea. The society initiates some 1,500 new members each year.

The Regis University chapter of Alpha Sigma Nu recognizes students of all ages in all five Regis University colleges who distinguish themselves in the principles on which the society was founded. The only honor society permitted to bear the name Jesuit, ASN 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.

Questions about Regis University's ASN chapter, as well as application guidelines may be directed to Sandy Wojciehoski in the Office of the Provost at or 303.458.1843.
