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.
Within the Gamma Upsilon Chapter, we provide support and encouragement for all sisters to excel academically. We have fun incentives for members to put their best effort into their academics, and provide help to see this through. Kappa hosts study nights for sisters to focus on their assignments in a relaxed and supportive environment with sisters, and of course no study night is ever complete without snacks! You will never be short a study buddy or a mentor, as we have programs for women in the same faculties to help each other out.
During weekly chapter meetings, we reward sisters who earned an A on assignments, and have a Victorias Secret raffle weekly for sisters who attended every class that week.
