“The concept of a national academic honor society for Greek undergraduates is attributed to Beth K. Saul (Alpha Epsilon Phi), then Assistant Director of Greek Life at the University of Southern California. Seeing the need for such an organization, she began gathering interest and ideas from the members who comprised the Row Academic Success Committee. On November 9th 1989 they succeeded in establishing Gamma Sigma Alpha as a local Greek academic honor society. With the Society established locally, the founding members were not content in merely having this society recognize outstanding undergraduate Greek scholars at the University of Southern California. Therefore, they decided to expand the Society to other Greek communities. ” (Gamma Sigma Alpha Ritual, 2009)
