Joining a sorority in college is a life-changing experience, but garnering an education is the top priority for Kappa. This is why each chapter is expected to maintain academic standards equal to or higher than their university’s or college’s all-sorority GPA. We don’t ask individual members to maintain a certain GPA due to the variances in course loads, but each member is expected to contribute to the overall GPA of the chapter.
If a Kappa struggles academically, we help her through it. The Academic Excellence Committee meets with her to craft an improvement plan using study tactics and time management. We want each sister to leave college with what they came for: a degree.
Our Academic Excellence programs ensure that members are matched with sisters who are in the same field or major so that everyone receives the help that they need in areas that may not be their strength. Prizes are awarded for attending our weekly study rooms and for sisters who exceed a 3.5 GPA (or higher!), as well as those who have increased their GPA by a significant amount over the course of one semester. We highly encourage our sisters to strive for excellence and reach their dreams.
