Academics

The pursuit of knowledge and striving for personal excellence in the classroom.

 

The Sorority and Fraternity Community prides itself on holding high academic standards for its members. It consistently holds a higher GPA (3.19 Spring 2019) than the all-university undergraduate average (3.11 Spring 2019). Student retention is also stronger among the sorority and fraternity community than members who are not affiliated with a sorority or fraternity, 93.5% of students who join a sorority or fraternity in their first year at Iowa State return for year two.

The Greek Academic Achievement Plan (GAAP) was developed between the Academic Success Center and the Office of Sorority and Fraternity Engagement to support chapters looking to enhance their academic achievement. Chapters can contact their council officers or office staff to develop a plan to incorporate GAAP in their chapter. Chapters can also collaborate with the Academic Success Center to provide effective socholarship programs, study skills, and individual academic planning.
