Students Inducted into National Jesuit Honor Society

May 18, 2017

Nearly 70 University of Scranton students were inducted into Alpha Sigma Nu, the national honor society for students in Jesuit colleges and universities, at a ceremony held recently on campus during the spring semester. The Scranton chapter of Alpha Sigma Nu was founded in 1943 and is the oldest honor society at the University. Juniors, seniors and graduate students, including students in doctoral level degree programs, who have distinguished themselves in scholarship, loyalty and service are eligible for membership.

Also at the ceremony, several members of the University community were given honorary inductions into the honor society. Honorary inductees were: Will T. Cohen, Ph.D., associate professor of theology and religious studies; Joseph Kraus, Ph.D., professor of English and theatre and director of the University’s Honors Program; Catherine Lovecchio, Ph.D., associate professor of nursing and undergraduate nursing program director; and Patrick Rogers, S.J., executive director of the University’s Jesuit Center.

In addition, Mary Engel, Ph.D., director of health-professional school placement and fellowship programs at the University and associate professor of English and theatre, was presented with the Edward Gannon, S.J. Teacher of the Year Award.
