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.
In addition to our Academic Excellence Committee, we also have a major head program. Each major head is typically an older member who has a wide knowledge of the area of study and can offer advice for other members. This program provides Kappas with the support and means necessary to succeed in their chosen career field. At the University of Alabama, we place a high importance on #Kappademics and want all of our members to be #KKGeniuses!
