Gamma Sigma Alpha Honor Society

Gamma Sigma Alpha was founded at the University of Southern California in 1989 by a group of scholastic achievers representing fraternities and sororities dedicated to the advancement of higher education and academic accomplishment.

About GSA

Gamma Sigma Alpha quickly grew to over 190 chapters in a little more than a decade.  Today, this honor society has more than 215 chapters and recognizes nearly 2,000 members of fraternities and sororities each year. 

Gamma Sigma Alpha National Academic Greek Honor Society (GSA) is the premier organization committed to the academic success of our members and alignment with the academic missions of our host institutions. Students are eligible for membership based on grade point average and membership in a Greek fraternity or sorority. 

The Dartmouth College chapter of Gamma Sigma Alpha was founded in 2012. 

The Society strives to uphold the high ideals of scholastic achievement within the Greek community and therefore, only Dartmouth members with a cumulative grade point average of 3.6 or above in their junior or senior year are eligible to join.
