Student Organizations

Eta Sigma Gamma
Eta Sigma Gamma is a National Professional Health Science Honorary organization. Gamma Iota is our chapter of Eta Sigma Gamma which was established in 1992. The primary purpose of Eta Sigma Gamma is to further the professional competence and dedication of individuals who are in the health science professions.                

The ideals of Eta Sigma Gamma are symbolized with a triangle surrounded by three joined circles. The triangle is divided into four equilateral triangles with each one containing a symbol representing the basic elements which are the foundation of the organization. The lamp of learning is in the center and is surrounded by an open book which represents teaching, a microscope which represents research, and an outstretched hand representing service.

Eta Sigma Gamma also seeks to:

  • Elevate the standards, ideals, and ethics of health science professionals
  • Establish autonomy for the health science discipline as a distinct discipline
  • Encourage and attract capable people to careers in the discipline.

 Eligibility requirements are established by the national organization. 
 Membership is open to any student with a major or minor in Health 
 Education: Community Health and Human Services who has
