What is Alpha Phi Sigma (“APS”)?
Alpha Phi Sigma is the only National Criminal Justice Honor Society for Criminal Justice majors. The society recognizes academic excellence of undergraduate, graduate, and juris doctorate students of criminal justice.
Boise State’s Alpha Kappa Chapter is one of the most active chapters of the 300+ in the nation. Here’s a sample of what we do each year:
CASA Holiday Project. Members solicit donations from the community and purchase holiday gifts for 50 disadvantaged children in the Treasure Valley.
Police/Fire Testing. Members administer both the written and physical exams for prospective police officers and administer the written exam for prospective firefighters.
Alpha Phi Sigma National Conference. Qualifying members participate in the annual APS conference. Members compete for scholarships and awards.
There are a variety of social activities for members each year, including the fall pizza party, bowling, and the spring awards banquet.
