Thirty Holy Cross students were inducted into Alpha Sigma Nu, the Jesuit honor society founded in 1915, at a ceremony held on Sunday, Oct. 24th in the Rehm Library. The new inductees exemplify the society’s values of excellence in scholarship, loyalty and service.
Selection to Alpha Sigma Nu is one of the highest honors that can be given on a Jesuit campus. Candidates for membership are selected from the top 15 percent of their class, and from this group membership will be awarded to only four percent.
In addition to the student inductees, three members of the College community were inducted as honorary members: Holy Cross President Vincent D. Rougeau, Amber Hupp, associate professor and chair in the chemistry department, and Stephanie Clark, program coordinator and lecturer in the deaf studies and sign languages department.
Alpha Sigma Nu, the only honor society permitted to bear the Jesuit name, encourages its members to a lifetime pursuit of intellectual development, deepening Ignatian spirituality, service to others and a commitment to the core principles of Jesuit education.
Also at the ceremony, it was announced that the following students will serve as the executive board officers: Stephen Dierkes ‘22, president; Lauren Vitelli ‘22, vice president; Amanda Wilderman ‘22, secretary; Aidan Ruppert ‘22, treasurer.
