Alpha Sigma Alpha joined the University of New Haven Greek community with recruitment happening nearly every weeknight at about 7:30 p.m. during the week of Sept. 14.

Aubrey Winn, an ASA representative who is staying here to assist until November, spoke to the Charger Bulletin about some of the aspects of the newest sorority hoping to colonize at University of New Haven.

Alpha Sigma Alpha has eight core values that it tries to strengthen in its potential and current members. These eight values are: balance, generosity, integrity, learning, relationship, growth, enjoyment, and responsibility.

The national organization, which is one of the 26 affiliated with Panhellenic, focuses on developing women of character and their concern for the well-being of others. Potential new members may find themselves identifying with this sorority if you are a person who wants to become a leader, someone who wants to be brought out of their shell by a national network of support and who wishes to be or is substantially involved with their community. Alpha Sigma Alpha has four national philanthropies; The Special Olympics, Girls on the Run (an organization that supports young women), S. June Smith Center, ASA Foundation. There is also the concept of D.O.T Days which is when the members of the sisterhood donate their time and goods collected for the full first week of October.

Many people often believe that joining a sorority comes with hurdles, like time management and leadership development, but ASA has developed a new member program to help guide its initiates over common hurdles and into a group of successful young women. ASA hopes that its members are enabled to reach out to others, inspired to grow in confidence, and develop the tools to become a stronger leader. The sorority wants to give its members a well-rounded experience with community service, by both giving time and donations, and the chances to make a difference in the moment. The new organization has no set colonization date for UNH but the group hopes to have established themselves on campus more by next semester.
