Chi Alpha Sigma is the first, and only, national scholar-athlete society to honor those four-year collegiate student-athletes who have excelled in both the classroom and in athletic competition.

Founded in 1996 and with over 300 active chapters nationwide, Chi Alpha Sigma recognizes undergraduate college student-athletes who participate in a sport at the varsity intercollegiate level, achieve junior academic standing or higher after their fifth full time semester, and earn a 3.4 or higher cumulative grade point average. One institutional chapter membership will induct all eligible student-athletes each year and the student-athletes are recognized for life and never asked to pay any fees themselves.

To start a chapter on your campus today, contact Kellen Wells-Mangold, Executive Director, at kellen@ncahs.org or visit chialphasigma.org for more information.

3.  Morrisville Puts 2023 Season on Hiatus

The SUNY Morrisville Athletics Department has announced, after significant consideration, a pause on the softball program for the 2022-23 athletics season.
The Athletics Department, alongside college administration, will continue to explore all options to position the softball program for success in the future.

The Mustangs finished 6-28 a year ago. Of the 16 players on the roster, 14 were first-years or sophomores in 2022.

>> What They're Saying: "First, I am incredibly grateful for the members of the softball team and their dedication and passion for the program and the Morrisville community," said SUNY Morrisville Athletics Director Matt Grawrock. "They have sacrificed so much, and to be at this point is hard knowing all they have given, as well as so many before them. This was not an easy decision, and the timing is due in large part to the fact that we were working to explore every option until the last moment."

7. Yappy Hour

Outside the Wonder Bar — a music venue across from the Asbury Park boardwalk on the Jersey Shore — dogs jump from plastic pool to pool and lap from a sprinkler while their owners drink up, Reuters reports.

  • Three days a week, from 3 to 6 p.m., owners let their pets off the leash and grab drinks from an outdoor bar.

The pooches dig in the sand, run on a deck and cool off in the pools, watched by "doggy bouncers" who step in if anyone gets aggressive.
