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.
Here at Drake University, the women of Kappa Kappa Gamma are extremely focused on academics. As a chapter, we strive to encourage each other in scholarship, recognizing each woman’s academic achievements and encouraging her continued success. Check out a few of our chapter's many academic programs...
Owl Pals - Each new member is paired with one active member with the same or similar major, her “Owl Pal”. The two sisters are encouraged to study together and use each other as academic resources. Owl Pals can also work together to register for classes and give advice on college academics!
Geek of the Week - Each week at chapter meetings, a member is named “Geek of the Week”, rewarding her for logging over 10 study hours in one week.
@DrakeKKGScholar - Members of Gamma Theta are encouraged to tweet at our chapter’s scholarship twitter account. Ladies can share their academic successes with their sisters and potentially win prizes each week! Check out the latest tweets from our scholarly members here!
