About us

torchcrestAlpha Gamma Sigma, or AGS as it is often called, is the California Community College Scholastic Honor Society.

The Greek Letters in our name were selected because they are the initials from Greek words whose meanings represent the motto of AGS: “Add to good character, knowledge, and judgment.”

ALPHA stands for “Arete” meaning “Excellence”

GAMMA stands for “Gnosis” meaning “Knowledge”

SIGMA stands for “Sophrosyne” meaning “Wisdom”

In an age where meaningless honors abound, AGS membership requires effort!

If you’re ready to work, we’d love to have you join us!

The purpose of this organization is to foster, promote, maintain, and recognize scholarship.The function of the state organization is to encourage local chapters to develop, in themselves or in cooperation with other chapters, programs offering cultural, social, or enrichment experiences as part of the total experience of community college students.The state organization annually awards scholarships to members and also encourages chapters to provide opportunities for participation in service activities and to award scholarships of their own.

So come join us at our first meeting for the Spring 2011 semester. We meet every other Tuesday starting  January 10, 2012 from 4:30PM – 5:30PM in room SCI – 313.
