Chi Alpha Sigma Induction Ceremony

SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. – Seton Hall University announced the induction of 39 student-athletes into the National College Athlete Honor Society, Chi Alpha Sigma, as part of a ceremony in held in the Walsh Library Rotunda Room on Thursday morning.

The Chi Alpha Sigma National College Athlete Honor Society was founded at DePauw University in 1996 as a student-athlete honor society. Its purpose was to recognize high academic achievers and sport letter winners at the collegiate level.

In order to achieve the distinction, the student-athlete must achieve a cumulative grade point average of 3.4 or higher, have achieved at least junior standing and be of good moral character. 

The stated purposes of the organization are to:

  • Encourage and reward high academic scholarship of college athletes at four year accredited colleges.
  • To recognize outstanding academic achievements by intercollegiate varsity sport student-athletes.
  • To encourage good citizenship, moral character, and friendship among the high academic achievers in college athletics.
  • To recognize and honor the individual athlete, his/her team, sport, athletic department and university.
  • To mentor and provide leadership to other athletes.

The Class of 2013 is comprised 21 juniors, 16 seniors and two graduate students, representing 13 of Seton Hall's varsity programs. These exemplary individuals are at the head of a SHU student-athlete population that currently holds a collective cumulative grade-point average of 3.243, the highest mark in school history.
