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.
We are proud of our academic accomplishments and strive to meet Kappa’s expectations.
Academically our chapter continues to thrive. We encourage both academic achievement along with health and relaxation through study breaks in the space organized by our Vice President of Academic Excellence. Every month or so, our VPAE also holds Kappa Koffee hours during stressful midterm and finals season. Each year, we also assign younger sisters as "Thesis Fairies" for those seniors who are working on finishing their concentration theses. Additionally we recognize the achievements of our seniors and the overall academic accomplishments of our members at the annual professors tea. This event allows Kappas to build relationships with the Harvard faculty while celebrating the chapter's academic accomplishments.
With help from our Education Chair, we also hold many helpful events for seniors and underclassmen to prepare them for life after college, including an Ann Taylor event on dressing professionally and a personal finance workshop.
