Eta Sigma Alpha


Eta Sigma Alpha is Georgia College's Honors Student Association. Eta Sigma Alpha organizes numerous service, social and other 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 $75 fee payable to Eta Sigma Alpha; this may be waived for students receiving federal financial aid and 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 freshmen 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 Honors (or Eta Sig) 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) are worth 3 points.

Eta Sigma Alpha events are posted on the Honors Program's OrgSync page.
