Alpha Sigma Gamma

Alpha Sigma Gamma Society


By: Forrest Huffman, ASG President, Temple University




Alpha Sigma Gamma, the International Real Estate Honorary Society, is pleased to report another exceptional membership year with the induction of 63 new members in 2010. The 2011 calendar year is promising to be another great year of recognizing the academic contributions of real estate students with 61 new members inducted as of August 31, 2011. The Alpha Sigma Gamma Society now has over 500 members in 28 chapters throughout the U.S.


The Alpha Sigma Gamma Society is also pleased to announce the creation of a two new chapters: American University with Peter Chinloy as chapter president and Marylhurst University, located near Portland, OR with Sunny Liston at the helm.  Marylhurst offers both a BS and a MBA in real estate. Both Marylhurst programs include a strong online component. American University, located in Washington, DC, needs no introduction to ARES members given its recognized strong commitment to real estate over many years. The Alpha Sigma Gamma Society is pleased to welcome our newest chapters and the new chapter presidents’ commitment to recognizing academic excellence.


Alpha Sigma Gamma is also pleased to introduce our new web site at ARES members are invited to visit the site and offer comments and suggestions for improvement (email Forrest at
