15 New Students Inducted into Alpha Sigma Lambda Honor Society

News Story: June 1, 2016

Sacred Heart University recently inducted 15 new students into the Alpha Sigma Lambda (ASL) National Continuing Education Honor Society.

The ASL honors nontraditional adult learners who have achieved academic excellence while balancing the demands of professional and personal life, along with their education. Membership is reserved for SHU students who have a GPA of at least 3.2 and a minimum of 24 credit hours, 12 of which must be in the liberal arts. In addition to spotlighting their exceptional achievement as scholars, the honor is an additional credential in their career portfolio.

After SHU’s 35th annual ASL induction, the new members were honored at a ceremony in the Hearth Room, with family and friends in attendance.

“One of the highlights of this year’s induction ceremony was the number of graduating adults who were planning to pursue graduate programs at SHU,” said Mary Lou DeRosa, vice provost for special academic programs. “The academic achievements of working students with busy families are celebrated annually with families, friends and the University College advisers and staff. The academic journey is well supported at SHU.”

The Society seeks to inspire nontraditional students to continue their educations and to recognize their academic achievements and contributions. It is the oldest and largest chapter-based honor society for full- and part-time students with chapters across the country.
