Gamma Sigma Alpha National Greek Academic Honor Society

Members of Lycoming College Chapter of Gamma Sigma Alpha National Greek Academic Honor Society

Gamma Sigma Alpha, National Greek Academic Honor Society, was founded to promote intellectual interaction between Greek students and the academic community. The purpose of the Society is to promote the advancement of education among Greeks, to instill a greater spirit of cooperation among Greek students and organizations, and to encourage excellence in scholarship.

In 1989, a group of scholastic achievers at the University of Southern California, representing various Greek fraternities and sororities joined together to create an organization dedicated to the advancement of higher education and academic accomplishment. The Alpha chapter of Gamma Sigma Alpha was founded on November 9, 1989, as a result of these students' efforts. The national board was established the following year to promote the Society's ideals on campuses across the country.

Gamma Sigma Alpha is committed to the leadership, academic achievement, and excellence of Greek members everywhere.
