Alpha Sigma Nu (ASN) is the International Honour Society for Jesuit institutions of Higher Learning. The Society inducts as members students, alumni and associates of Jesuit institutions who distinguish themselves by their Scholarship and leadership in Loyalty and Service to the institutions and the community.
Now in its 76th year since its founding at Marquette University, ASN’s member institutions include all 28 Jesuit Colleges and Universities in the USA, Sogang University in Seoul, South Korea; Campion College; and the three Jesuit schools of theology in Berkeley, California; Boston, Massachusetts; and Toronto.
The Campion College chapter was founded in 2006. Its most recent collaboration with Campion’s peer Campus Ministers and CSSU was a lunch of Afghan and Ethiopian foods to raise awareness of the situations of refugees in Regina and the world at large. Funds raised at the lunch went to support the work of Regina’s Open Door refugee organization.
To be invited to apply for membership in the Campion College chapter of ASN, the students must place in the top 15% of their class and must have taken at least one course in religious studies or philosophy. On the basis of their credentials and an essay by which they document their Scholarship, Loyalty and Service, applicants are selected for membership in numbers not exceeding 4% of their class. Members of ASN are the best of the best students at Campion College.
