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 115 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
To join the Gamma Psi chapter, potential new members must have a minimum of a 2.5 GPA. Our Greek advisor uses your high school GPA, if you're an incoming freshman, or overall collegiate GPA, if you're a transfer or returning student.
Panhellenic sororities at Fitchburg State University not only encourage campus involvement, but also promote scholarship!
Our campus' Panhellenic average is 3.2 with our chapter's GPA being 3.3. In fact, our GPAs are so consistently high that our Greek advisor wants to raise the minimum GPA requirement for Sorority Life and Panhellenic to a 3.0!
