Academics & Scholarship
Alpha Gamma Delta establishes a strong academic foundation for all members and encourages them to reach for their best. Our Academic Excellence Team provides members with resources and motivation to excel. They also keep members current on available scholarships, study abroad programs, tutoring assistance, job interview and resume skills training, internships and career counseling.
Academic success is celebrated in Alpha Gamma Delta—both as a group and individually. In addition to chapter-wide recognition for academic achievement, the Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation awards scholarships to more than 150 deserving sisters across the U.S. and Canada.
Alpha Gamma Delta has made a commitment to academic excellence for each of our individual sisters and the chapter as a whole. The Fraternity has set goals to ensure that academic achievement remains a priority. Each member must attain at least a 2.5 grade point average to be initiated into the chapter. Once a part of Alpha Gamma Delta, each collegiate member must maintain a 3.0 to remain in Good Standing with the International Fraternity. Our dedication to an exceptional education happened before our introduction to the Fraternity, and our chapter reinforces this commitment. We are proud of our academic excellence and strive to do even better with each new semester. We enjoy study dates in the library, impromptu gatherings in the Student Union, and we understand that all of us are working together to improve our scholarship and experience while in college.
CHAPTER SCHOLASTIC PROGRAMS
Strive for Pi: Sisters with a 3.14 GPA or higher are recognized by the chapter and the International Fraternity. At the end of each semester, a Strive for Pi event is held commemorating the sisters with this academic achievement. One of the highlights of this event is the opportunity for someone to pie our Sister President in the face!
Smarty Pants: Sisters turn in exams, papers, projects, etc. in which they received an A. These are entered into a drawing and each week a winner is chosen for a special surprise gift!
