Academics are a top priority for Kappa Delta. The sorority provides members with the resources they need to be their best.
Each chapter’s academic support program is customized by the chapter and its advisors. Programming options include study sessions, mentoring members in the same major, individual tutoring, incentives for good grades and more. Further, chapters hold an Academic Success Seminar at least twice during the year. Kappa Delta’s academic excellence focus is designed to grow with members throughout their college years, as their needs and areas of concern evolve.
The Kappa Delta Foundation supports our commitment to academics by awarding nearly $450,000 in graduate and undergraduate scholarships, leadership trainings, internships and professional development opportunities each year to Kappa Delta sisters across the nation. These scholarships have been made possible through gifts, funds and bequests to the Kappa Delta Foundation. Visit Kappa Delta’s national website for more information on scholarship opportunities and the application process.
Academic Excellence is one of the five stars of Kappa Delta therefore it is a very important part of our HPU chapter. We have held the title of highest GPA on campus for 20+ consecutive years and we strive to keep this going with the effort by each and every sister every semester. Instead of telling sisters to be at mandatory study hours or to keep their head in the books, we find uplifting ways to get sisters to want to study and keep their grades up to keep improving the overall academic success of the chapter. Sisters will form study groups for those who share the same major and are taking the same classes, sisters will sit down with others and help make study schedules and plans for the semester in order to reach their goals with grades, and during midterms and finals week we host quiet hours and study breaks with treats in our house for sisters to be together during some tougher academic parts of the semester. We also have a lot of sisters who are tutors within different subject areas that are always willing to sit down with whomever whenever to lend a helping hand. Academics are a crucial part of Gamma Gamma.
