Chi Alpha Sigma is a non-profit organization established to recognize college students who earn a varsity letter in at least one sport while maintaining a 3.4 or higher cumulative GPA throughout their junior and senior years. The goal of the organization is to recognize outstanding academic achievement by intercollegiate athletes.

Middle Tennessee has now inducted a total of 103 student-athletes into the society after just seven years of eligibility. In 2005, the first year Blue Raider student-athletes could be inducted, a total of 26 were recognized. Middle Tennessee placed 10 student-athletes into the society in 2006, 15 more in 2007, 10 in 2008, nine in 2009, 16 in 2010, 13 in 2011, and four in 2012.
