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.
As aspiring and succesful young women at Penn State University, the sisters of Kappa Kappa Gamma pride ourselves on academics. This past semester, 19 of our sisters recieved a 4.0 GPA and made President's List. 108 of our sisters made Dean's List. Our sister, Sophia Datsko, graduated from Penn State Schreyer's Honors College summa cum laude.
We are so proud of all of our sisters!
