Gamma Sigma Alpha


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.

 To date, more than 215 chapters have been chartered throughout North America, each sharing the common goal of recognizing the many outstanding student-leaders at their institutions.


Gamma Sigma Alpha was founded at the University of Southern California on November 9, 1989, by a group of scholastic achievers representing various fraternities and sororities dedicated to the advancement of higher education and academic accomplishment. Led by Beth K. Saul, USC’s visionary Sorority Advisor, a national board was established the following year to promote the organization’s ideals on campuses across the country
