Salem’s Sigma Chi Nu Chapter of Alpha Sigma Lambda was founded in 2008 and recognizes adult students who, after completing six credit hours, are in the top 20% of their class and maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.2 on a 4.0 scale. In 2008, the Sigma Chi Nu Chapter of Alpha Sigma Lambda welcomed eight inductees. Since then, more than eighty adult students at Salem College have been inducted into the honor society.
