  • Does Alpha Sigma Tau have a New Member Education Program?

    Yes. Alpha Sigma Tau’s New Member Education program teaches new members about the history, values, and aims of the Sorority, and helps Sisters get to know one another. New members also complete Name Your Story, a Health & Safety program that gives our members the opportunity to not only learn about the signs and symptoms of the most common mental health concerns affecting college students today but also provides them with training on how to talk about these experiences with their Sisters.

    Yes. Alpha Sigma Tau’s risk management policy addresses risks with alcohol and drug use, hazing, sexual abuse and harassment, and health, fire, and safety.

  • How do I order a new or replacement Badge?

    Official Sorority Badges and new member pins must be ordered through Alpha Sigma Tau National Headquarters. To place an order:

    • If you are a new member of Alpha Sigma Tau, your chapter will order your Badge for you, so you have it in time for your Initiation ceremony.
    • If you are a collegiate chapter officer looking to report your chapter’s new members (and order their Badges), log into Officer Portal at the top of this page. Your chapter’s Director of New Member Education is responsible for reporting your chapter’s new members within three weeks of the Initiation ceremony.
    • Individual members can order replacement Badges through AΣT Connect. To order a new or replacement Badge, log in to AΣT Connect through the top menu of this page. Once logged in, click “Shop/Pay,” select the Badge option(s) you want to buy, and complete the payment information at the bottom of the page.

  • I am not a member of the Sorority and my aging mother recently passed down her Badge and other sentimental Sorority items to me. I don’t know what to do with the items. Should I send them to Headquarters?

    Each member of Alpha Sigma Tau Sorority makes a lifetime lease of the Badge from the Sorority during the Alpha Sigma Tau Sorority Initiation Ritual Ceremony. It is the policy of the Sorority that the Badge is either (1.) buried with a member when she enters Eternal Chapter, (2.) reverted to Alpha Sigma Tau National Sorority through the Alpha Sigma Tau National Headquarters to be held for a future family member who may join the Sorority, or (3.) archived, depending upon the member’s wishes.

  • I haven’t been involved with Alpha Sigma Tau since I graduated. What is a good way to ease into getting involved again?

    There are several ways, but here are a few great first steps: (1.) Update your contact information by logging into AΣT Connect to ensure you’re receiving the latest communications; (2.) locate your nearest alumnae chapter or association; (3.) consider attending an upcoming event; and (4.) visit a Sister you haven’t spoken to recently. Then reconnect and share the photo on social media.

  • I haven’t received any form of correspondence from the Sorority. How do I stay in the loop?

    We probably don’t have your most current, up-to-date contact information. Update your contact information by logging into AΣT Connect. Also be sure to follow Alpha Sigma Tau on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

  • I often see Badges with charms hanging from a chain. What are those and how can I get one?

    The chain, known as a chapter guard, attaches to your Badge and has your chapter affiliation on the other end. Many members choose to dress up their Badge with dangles that represent their officer positions, honors, awards, and more. You can order yours through Herff Jones, the Sorority’s official jeweler.

  • I’ll be in Indianapolis and would like to visit Headquarters. Is it possible to get a tour?

    We would love to give you a tour of Headquarters! Contact or 317-613-7575 with details of your trip, and someone will return your message. We try our best to accommodate any member’s request for a tour.

  • Is Alpha Sigma Tau a member of the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC)?

    Yes, we have been a member since 1951. The National Panhellenic Conference is an umbrella organization of 26 national and international sororities, and one of the oldest and largest women’s organizations in the world. Alpha Sigma Tau proudly adheres to all of NPC’s policies on recruitment, extension, operations, and other important areas, which makes for a richer, more positive experience for our members.

  • Is there a GPA requirement?

    Yes! Academics are very important at Alpha Sigma Tau. Our minimum GPA requirement is 2.5. Please note that some chapters have higher minimum GPA requirements

  • What is the time commitment of being a member?

    Being part of a Sorority is a time commitment, but it’s time well-invested for all the benefits members reap from the experience. Initially, mandatory new member meetings are once a week, which will help you learn the “ins and outs” of Alpha Sigma Tau. At least two Sisterhood events are offered each week, but those are for fun and are “come as you can.”

    After the new member period, chapters host weekly chapter business meetings which all members are required to attend, along with other social, recruitment, philanthropy, and Sisterhood events of the chapter’s choice.

  • Who should I or the chapter on my campus contact with questions?

    All chapters have a designated Headquarters Staff Contact who can answer questions that you or members of the chapter may have. Collegians may access their contact’s information on Officer Portal, and campus professionals may call Alpha Sigma Tau Headquarters at 317-613-7575.
