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.
Gamma Epsilon was recognized with the second highest GPA of all sorority life at Pitt.
To help keep our sisters accountable for their study hours, we have implemented a system called study tables where each Kappa is responsible for recording her study hours. Our cumulative chapter GPA is above the All-Female, All-Greek and average GPA for Pitt students.
