Sigma Phi Sigma is a working honor society that emphasizes service to the community. The honor society is a unique group. In addition to small group community service, members represent the University at Convocation and the Governor’s Ball.
The honor society has members from many majors, including but not limited to administration of justice, biology, education and nursing. Students with a minimum GPA of at least 3.4 who are interested in making a deep connection with the University are invited to apply for membership.
“Sigma is a wonderful way to get yourself involved in a unique group of people and submerge yourself in a truly dynamic group,” said Francesca Galeazzi ’18. “Being able to serve our campus and community and maintain a leadership role on campus all while meeting new people in Sigma builds both confidence and membership on our Salve community.”
