How can fraternity and sorority membership help me succeed academically?
Academic success is an important part of college life. One of the central purposes of fraternities and sororities is to promote academic excellence. Each organization requires a minimum grade point average to remain an active member of the chapter. All chapters emphasize the value of academic success and will help their members achieve this success with scholarship programs, study halls, incentive programs and study buddies. Because the fraternity and sorority community puts so much emphasis on scholastics, it consistently has a higher cumulative grade point average than the non-affiliated students, and has established the Order of Omega, its own honorary group, to recognize outstanding fraternity men and sorority women.
