PHILANTHROPY - The Eta Eta chapter of Alpha Sigma Alpha has many philanthropies including Special Olympics, Girls on the Run, Ronald McDonald House, S. June Smith Center, and the Alpha Sigma Alpha Foundation. Each school year, members of Alpha Sigma Alpha participate in multiple volunteer events that benefit each one of their philanthropies and they are very passionate about this work.
ACADEMIC/SCHOLARSHIP - Alpha Sigma Alpha requires a minimum GPA of 2.6 to be a member in good standing with the sorority. Members easily maintain this GPA by implementing study hours based on the member's current GPA and using study incentives. The Alpha Sigma Alpha Foundation also awards scholarships to those members who are exceeding the expectations in the classroom.
COMMUNITY SERVICE - Each school year, an active member of Alpha Sigma Alpha has to complete 25 service hours. These hours are broken up by semester; each semester having 12.5 hours of community service to complete. Hours are easily attainable with the many philanthropic events the Eta Eta chapter hosts, as well as participating in other organizations' philanthropies.
LEADERSHIP - In our chapter, we have many leadership opportunities. We have seven (7) executive board positions, fifteen programming positions, special chairs for events like Dad's Day and Yell Like Hell leaders. Every member also belongs to a committee of their choosing. Alpha Sigma Alpha also encourages members to attend conferences, leadership institute, and conventions throughout the year.
MEMBERSHIP DEVELOPMENT - When a woman joins our sisterhood, she has joined our organization for life. It is a very exciting time, and a time to get acquainted with everything we do. After going through Advantage, our new member program, members of Alpha Sigma Alpha continue to learn about each other, the sorority, and themselves on a daily basis. One of our eight values is growth; something we instill in our members and often encourage. Members who hold leadership positions learn even more about the sorority and the way it works.
SISTERHOOD - Sisterhood is one of the foundations of Alpha Sigma Alpha. We aim to foster close friendships with other members throughout our time as an Alpha Sigma Alpha. Throughout the year, we have multiple sisterhood events like going to get a bite to eat, having a paint fight, and making crafts together for our philanthropies. At the beginning of each school year, we host a sisterhood retreat where our members spend a day together in fellowship, and are able to bond and learn even more about each other. Sisterhood retreats are a great way to rekindle friendships and learn more about members that others may not see on a daily basis.
