Delta Epsilon Sigma (ΔΕΣ) is a national scholastic honor society that was established in 1939 for students of Catholic universities and colleges in the United States.[1][2] The society was founded at Loras College in Dubuque, Iowa in 1939 by Father Fitzgerald. Requirements for membership are as follows. Undergraduate students must be ranked in the top twenty percent of their class; graduate students must have a minimum GPA of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale. These excellent statistics alone do not assure membership; candidates must also have a record of dedication to intellectual activity and community service.[3]
