Alpha Sigma Alpha


          The purpose of Alpha Sigma Alpha Sorority is to foster close friendships between members and to develop women of poise and purpose. The vision of Alpha Sigma Alpha is to cultivate values and ideals in women who are known for their character and concern for others. Alpha Sigma Alpha inspires women to lead, to serve and most of all to make a difference. Alpha Sigma Alpha promotes high ideals and standards for its members throughout their lives by emphasizing balance among our four aims of intellectual, physical, social and spiritual development. Alpha Sigma Alpha provides opportunities through: Sisterhood — forming strong bonds of unconditional friendship based on common values and experiences; Heritage — expressed through creed, ritual and history; and Leadership and Service — enhanced by chapter, campus and community involvement.
