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.
With all the exciting events and philanthropies we get to be involved in because of Kappa, it can be hard to remember how important academics are to our chapter as well. We help remind our members that staying on top of school work is just as important as participating in chapter events. We offer positive encouragement to members who do exceptionally well, and provide support for those who need it. Our chapter’s overall academic success is dependent on the individual success of all our members, so it’s important for everyone to feel supported and keep a positive attitude towards academics.
