Whether or not you participate in the Honors Program, honor societies may enrich your experience at Saddleback, provide you with leadership opportunities, bring you into a network of excellent students, increase your opportunities for scholarships, and assist in your transfer.
As of Spring 2023, three campus-wide honor societies are recognized by Saddleback College:
- Alpha Gamma Sigma, the California community college honor society, and
- Phi Theta Kappa, the international honor society for two-year colleges.
- The National Society of Leadership and Success, sponsored by the Student Development Office
NOTE: Alpha Gamma Sigma and Phi Theta Kappa are local chapters of larger organizations formed to recognize and reward academic excellence. It is unfortunately true that for-profit companies sometimes pose as honor societies. We recommend that you contact Bridget Hoida (email@example.com) or Ryan Hitch (firstname.lastname@example.org), co-advisors for the Saddleback College Honor Societies before paying dues to any "honor society" other than these.
