DURHAM, N.H. – The University of New Hampshire and the National College Athlete Honor Society, Chi Alpha Sigma, announced that 58 student-athletes were inducted into the honor society on Monday, as announced at the ceremony in the Skybox Lounge at the Whittemore Center.

The Chi Alpha Sigma National College Athlete Honor Society was founded at DePauw University in 1996 as a student-athlete honor society. Its purpose was to recognize high academic achievers and sport letter winners at the collegiate level.
