On Wednesday, Wesleyan University Athletics inducted 50 student-athletes into the Inaugural class of Chi Alpha Sigma, the National Collegiate Athlete Honor Society. The student-athletes were recognized at a dinner, where they were presented with a certificate of membership and honor cords. The class is the first to be inducted into the Sigma chapter. It was established in the summer of 2023 in response to the student-athletes desire to be recognized for their academic achievements. The criteria for induction to Chi Alpha Sigma requires the student-athlete to attend a four-year accredited college or university and be a member of the NCAA or NAIA. The honoree also must achieve at least junior academic standing by the fifth semester or seventh quarter, as determined by the certifying institution, must have been at the university for a minimum of one year, and must have achieved a minimum cumulative grade-point average of a 3.4 (on a 4.0 scale). 

Chi Alpha Sigma is a nonprofit organization established to recognize college student-athletes who excel on and off the field of competition. The organization was founded in 1996 by then DePauw University head football coach Nick Mourouzis. His goal was to provide outstanding student-athletes an opportunity to connect within a fraternal association that aligns their educational and athletic successes for a lifetime.
