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 chapter has made it a priority to emphasize achievement in the classroom. Our sisters are CWEL, Weissman, and Presidential scholars. Throughout the years, supporting the endeavors of our talented and driven women has demanded a variety of approaches as we change with new times and new members.
Along with our endeavors to maintain our high standards of academics, our chapter makes it an effort to reach out to professors as well. Every semester, we hold a Professor’s Tea where each member can invite her favorite instructors. The sisters use this opportunity to meet new professors while also getting the chance to learn more about their current professors. We look forward to continuing this tradition in years to come and continuing to expand our presence on campus through outward-reaching events.
