The University chapter of Alpha Sigma Nu (ASN), the Jesuit Honor Society, inducted 69 new student members as well as four honorary members in the McIlhenny Ballroom on Sunday. In a brunch with student and faculty members of ASN and the inductees and their parents, the Rev. Kevin P. Quinn, S.J. formally accepted each student into the honor society. New student inductees, a full list of whom can be found at the bottom of the page, received a certificate and the ASN pin.

The Jesuit Honor Society searches for individuals at The University who best embody the Jesuit ideals of scholarship, loyalty and service. Every student inductee has a history of strong scholarship at The University, loyalty to the core values of Jesuit education, and commitment to serving for and with others both within and beyond the University community.

In order to be considered for ASN, students must be of at least junior standing and in the top 15 percent of their respective class. Additionally, each college within The University can nominate no more than four percent of each class for consideration. In completing the application, students must submit a resume and a personal statement detailing their commitment to the Jesuit ideals. The selection process is extremely competitive and the students ultimately selected represent a small subset of the best academic students at this University. Once inducted, the students became members of the Jesuit Honor Society for life and may participate in any of the 32 chapters of ASN nationwide at Jesuit institutions of higher education.

Also at the brunch, the Alpha Sigma Nu teacher of the Year Award, formerly known as the Gannon Award, was awarded to Mary Engel, Ph.D. Engel is a professor in the English department as well as the Health Professions Organization (HPO) faculty advisor and the Director of Health-Professional School Placement.

Congratulations to all the new inductees on this exceptional accomplishment.
