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 both for the individual and for the chapter. The chapter has specific goals and guidelines to assure that academic achievement remains a priority. The chapter continues to be ranked top in grades and stays above the All Women’s Campus GPA. Each member must attain at least a 2.5 grade point average to be initiated. Each collegiate chapter must maintain a 2.9 to remain in Good Standing with the International Fraternity.We provide our new members with a study hall program during their first semester.
Our chapter provides 2 scholarships for our members each year. One is with the EIU Foundation and the other is with the Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation.
We strive each semester to meet our academic goals. We study together in the library and at the chapter house, understanding that we are all working together to improve our scholarship and well being. Fall 2019 we ranked first in grades with a 3.38 GPA.
