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.
Each term, Epsilon Chi hosts a faculty outreach event at our house appropriately called "FaculTea". Sisters invite past and present professors and other faculty members at Dartmouth that they would like to spend time with outside of prescribed class time. It is a great success every term and other houses on campus have followed our model and introduced events for sister-faculty interaction as well.
