At an evening initiation ceremony on April 4th, 133 Marquette University students will be inducted into the Marquette University Chapter of Alpha Sigma Nu. This Jesuit honor society acknowledges, awards, and inspires a select group of students who distinguish themselves with respect to scholarship, loyalty, and service while attending Jesuit institutions of higher education. The following four College of Education students are included among the inductees:
Alpha Sigma Nu was founded in 1915 at Marquette University. The men's honor society, known as Alpha Sigma Tau until 1930, is now open to both men and women at chapters on all 30 Jesuit campuses in the United States, two in Canada, and one in Korea. Some 1,700 members are inducted each year. The mission of Alpha Sigma Nu is to understand, appreciate, and promote the ideals of Jesuit education — opening minds, doors and hearts to a lifelong journey in wisdom, faith and service. Fr. Jeffrey Labelle, S.J., Assistant Professor in EDPL, currently serves as faculty advisor for the Marquette chapter of Alpha Sigma Nu.
