Eta Sigma Alpha

ETA SIGMA ALPHA

Eta Sigma Alpha is Georgia College's Honors Student Association. Eta Sigma Alpha organizes numerous academic, cultural, service, and social events and activities. All Honors students are required to join Eta Sigma Alpha and remain in good standing (see below). There is a one-time $65 fee payable to Eta Sigma Alpha; this may be pro-rated for collegiate entry and transfer students. Fees are used to cover the cost of food for Eta Sigma Alpha events and for some events (such as Honors Convocation) jointly sponsored with the Honors Program. The fee also covers the graduation banquet for graduating seniors, two family members and a faculty guest.

To remain in good standing with the Eta Sigma Alpha, Honors freshman need 10 Eta Sigma Alpha participation points per semester, sophomores need 8, juniors need 6, and seniors need 4; at least half of these points need to come from Eta Sigma Alpha and/or Honors Program-sponsored events, as opposed to "General" events. Honors lunch and dinner seminars are worth 1 participation point; Honors book discussions are worth 2 participation points; presentations or performances of creative work are worth 2 points; and presentations at undergraduate research conferences (such as the Georgia Collegiate Honors Council and Southern Regional Honors Council annual meetings, and the GC Undergraduate Research Conference) are worth 3 points.

Eta Sigma Alpha events are posted on the Honors Program's OrgSync page, which is where students also register their participation points.
