Delta Epsilon Sigma National Scholastic Honor Society is a national scholastic honor society for students, faculty, and alumni of colleges and universities with a Catholic tradition. Since 1939, member academics recognize the achievement of their colleagues, foster scholarly activities and help to build a sense of intellectual community among its members. Delta Epsilon Sigma also gives national recognition to outstanding work accomplished by member colleges and chapters which total 119 chapters nationwide. They sponsor scholarship, graduate fellowship, and undergraduate writing competitions annually for their members. Undergraduate students are eligible for membership if they’re ranked in the top 20 percent of their class, have a minimum GPA of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale, and have a record of dedication to intellectual activity and community service.
