Gamma Delta Chapter at East Tennessee State University

Kappa Delta

Academic Excellence

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.

 

Academics are a top priority for Kappa Delta. At a time when it was uncommon for females to attend college, our founders were on the forefront. They believed in the pursuit of knowledge as a powerful and empowering goal, and they created an organization that would offer women support for their intellectual endeavors.

Today Kappa Delta remains committed to providing members with the resources they need to be their best. Kappa Delta’s academic excellence focus is designed to grow with members throughout their college years, as their needs and areas of concern evolve.

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 once during the year.

The Kappa Delta Foundation supports our commitment to academics by awarding approximately $120,000 in scholarships, fellowships and grants 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.

At Gamma Delta we pride ourselves on being one of the top two sororities in grades for the past several years. Every week at meeting we encourage girls to reach their fullest potential academically by awarding our sisters for their efforts. A Study Bug of the Week is awarded to the girl that has logged the most study hours. Also girls that have exceded in their classes are highlighted during meeting. At the end of the semester each girl earning a GPA of 3.75 or higher receives a certificate of accomplishment and a gift card. Every year at our annual Formal an award is given to one new member and one older member that the chapter believes has put in a lot of effort toward their academic achivement. 

Over 75% of our chapter has a 3.0 or higher cumulative GPA.
