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.
Purdue Kappas are immersed in a wide variety of majors including management, engineering, international relations, health sciences, and communication, just to name a few. This year, our chapter was honored to receive the Academic Excellence Award at our national convention in Houston and we have maintained a cumulative GPA of 3.35.
