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.
Achieving academic excellence is something we truly value here at Kappa Kappa Gamma. At Zeta Upsilon, we have an excellent academic chair who is extremely dedicated to meeting the scholarly needs of each and every one of our members. Plus, Kappa Kappa Gamma requires each of its chapters to maintain a certain GPA.
Zeta Upsilon has excelled with academics within the past few years. Our Spring '14 Pledge class received the highest GPA of all Spring Pledge classes at Georgia Southern. As a whole, our chapter's GPA has raised significantly from the previous semesters. With our weekly study hours, Kappa Kappa Gamma provides support to encourage its members to thrive throughout their college years.
