First LDS Georgetown University grads admitted into Alpha Sigma Nu

Two May graduates of Georgetown University are believed to be the first Latter-day Saints at the school to become part of the prestigious honor society Alpha Sigma Nu. The school is the oldest Catholic and Jesuit institute of higher learning in the United States.

Emily Miller, 22, and Thomas Jeng, 24, both graduated magna cum laude (with high honors), earning bachelor's degrees in Spanish and International Politics, respectively. They are among only 4 percent of students inducted into Alpha Sigma Nu, the highest honor at Jesuit institutions including all disciplines. They were invited to apply on the basis of high academic excellence; loyalty to Jesuit ideals which include "a deep sense of truth and justice, a commitment to moral convictions, and efforts to advance the good of society;" and giving freely of time and energy in service to others.
