Mensa is an international society that has one - and only one - qualification for membership: a score in the top 2% of the population on a standardized intelligence test.
Mensa's purposes are to identify and foster human intelligence for the benefit of humanity; to encourage research in the nature, characteristics, and uses of intelligence; and to provide a stimulating intellectual and social environment for its members.
American Mensa has approximately 50,000
members. Five million Americans are eligible for Mensa membership.
Paso del Norte Mensa has more than 100 members spread over a large area, as you can tell by looking at the shaded area in the map above. This vast distance tends to make it difficult for members to get together on a regular basis, but also helps create a unique and diverse group of extremely interesting people. People from all walks of life are members of this group. Everything from doctors to custodians, card carrying rocket scientists to those who can't really pin down exactly what they do. We even have one member who qualified while being tested for the severity of brain damage he incurred in an accident.
If you would like to be part of this unique organization, or want more information about Mensa, contact one of the Paso Del Norte officers, or:
