Gamma Sigma Alpha


A group of scholastic achievers at the University of Southern California, representing various Greek fraternities and sororities, joined together to create an organization dedicated to the advancement of higher education and academic accomplishment. The Alpha Chapter of Gamma Sigma was founded on November 9, 1989, as a result of this student effort. The national board was established the following year to promote the Society's ideals on campuses across the country. The Society quickly grew to over 190 chapters in a little more than a decade.

  • upholding the high ideals of scholastic achievement
  • cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or above (on a 4.0 scale) at the start of their junior year or a grade point average of 3.5 or higher in any semester of their junior or senior year
