Who are Legacies?

A legacy is defined as:

  • Sister/step-sister
  • Daughter/step-daughter
  • Granddaughter/step-granddaughter
  • Niece/step-niece

of an Alpha Sigma Alpha member.

Legacies are considered important to the success of our Sorority.  Chapter members are strongly encouraged to really get to know and give extra consideration to legacies during recruitment.  Extending an invitation to membership to a legacy not only enables a chapter to gain a new member, it often revives the interest and loyalty of an alumna.  Membership, however, is by mutual selection, and it is important to encourage a legacy to choose an organization that suits her needs, and the chapter to select appropriate membership.  The ultimate decision as to whether or not a legacy is extended an invitation to membership is that of the collegiate chapter.


If you are unsure if your loved one is a legacy, we are happy to verify her legacy status here. If you are an alumna sending this inquiry, please provide the following information:

  • Potential new member’s first and last name
