Excellence in academics has always been an important value for the members of Kappa Alpha Theta, especially in the Gamma Delta chapter. We strive for outstanding academic success and we take pride in our accomplishments.
It is important that our members place a high priority on schoolwork. We offer a mentor program in which new members can pair with older girls of similar majors.Through this program, members have enjoyed the ability to converse regarding class-specific, academic, and professional advice. A database of courses and teacher recommendations is also available to each member.
Each year we recognize members for their academic success with gifts of appreciation for their hard work and commitment to our chapter. Members are recognized individually for achieving Dean’s List, Presidential Scholar, or the highest GPA in her member’s class. Additionally, each week we award a “Smart Cookie” reward to the member with the most outstanding academic achievement of the week.
Most recently, we ranked fifth for the highest average grade point average among the other 18 sororities on the University of Georgia’s campus! Our average grade point average among our members was 3.51, meaning 87% of our members ended the semester with a 3.00 or higher. Additionally, we had 40 members on Dean’s List (GPA 3.5-3.99), and 17 members on President’s list (GPA 4.0)! We are so proud of the smart, responsible, and committed women in the Gamma Delta chapter.
Thetas are involved in many different scholastic organizations across campus, including a variety of honor societies and academic clubs. Additionally, many of our members have completed a semester or summer program abroad for a global experience in education.

Kappa Alpha Theta Policy on Academic Achievement
Kappa Alpha Theta expects each member to achieve high scholarship and to develop to the fullest her intellectual, cultural, and social potential. Each chapter is required to set a definite scholarship average which members must maintain in order to retain the social privileges of active membership.
In addition, each chapter is expected to maintain an average above the All-Sorority Average (ASA) on its campus, and chapter bylaws shall establish specific grade requirements for officers.
Congratulations to our most recent graduates! Class of 2017, we are so proud of everything you have accomplished during your time at UGA!
