MILWAUKEE, WI (03/06/2012)(readMedia)-- Mikhaila Norton of Bettendorf, IA has been inducted into Alpha Sigma Nu, a prestigious international Jesuit honor society, at Marquette University. Norton is a senior in the College of Business Administration majoring in accounting and human resources.

Alpha Sigma Nu is a worldwide honor society for students at Jesuit colleges and universities who distinguish themselves in scholarship, loyalty, and service. Alpha Sigma Nu members exemplify and demonstrate a commitment to the Jesuit ideals of higher education, which are intellectual, social, moral, and religious in nature. Induction to Alpha Sigma Nu is one of the highest honors a student can receive on a Jesuit campus.

Alpha Sigma Nu applicants go through a rigorous application process. For eligibility, Alpha Sigma Nu candidates must rank in the top fifteen percent of their class, and no more than four percent of the junior and senior class is inducted. Nominees are chosen first by a student selection committee, and then approved by the students' respective college deans and Marquette University President Rev. Scott R. Pilarz, S.J.

Alpha Sigma Nu was founded in 1915 by Fr. John Danihy, S.J. at Marquette University. Danihy was the university's first athletic director and first dean of journalism.

An induction banquet to honor new members will take place on Saturday, April 14, in the AMU Ballrooms.
