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.
For Gamma Beta, academic excellence is our top priority. We pride ourselves on our outstanding grade point averages- which have landed us as first in grades for multiple semesters. As a chapter, we achieve these grades by promoting a job well done, having study hours and helping out those sisters who need tutoring to bring their grades up to be the best they can. This year at our national convention, Gamma Beta received the Academic Excellence award which reflected our outstanding grades and achievements for 2016-2018!
