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.
At Gamma Zeta, we encourage each member to strive for their greatest academic potential. To help members succeed, we provide resources and information about academic and career services offered by the University. In addition, the chapter nominates a Geek of the Week each week. This program recognizes different members who go above and beyond in their coursework or achieve an academic award or internship. Gamma Zeta also awards all members who receive a 3.5 GPA or higher with a Smart Cookies certificate. This semester, we had over 100 smart cookies and celebrated their hard work with a cookie cake party.
