MEET THE OFFICERS
One of the most important values of the sisters of the Epsilon Psi chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta is scholarship. We strive to make academics a priority and always take our studies seriously. In the Fall 2015 semester, our chapter placed first in scholarship on campus and we continue to work to maintain that high standard.
We also support our sisters who study abroad in countries across the world. By sending care packages and pairing abroad women with upperclassmen sisters to help them navigate their class schedules, we are able to help them through their international studies during their time overseas.
Additionally, we maintain weekly programs that provide initiatives to focus on academics. Every week in chapter, Bookworm prizes reward the sister with the most logged study hours during the previous week, and Smarty Panties rewards a sister who received a good grade during the week. Lastly, Mission Accomplished recognizes one sister who has achieved a scholarly accomplishment outside the classroom, such as the receipt of an internship or job offer.
The members of our chapter study a vast array of subjects and work towards degrees from the Jepson School of Leadership, the School of Arts & Sciences, the Robins School of Business, and the School of Professional & Continuing Studies. Scholarship is very important at our chapter and members are rewarded for good academic performance as well as supported in times of need. We are so proud of all of our sister's hard work!
Here are just a few examples of Theta scholarship...
Kappa Alpha Theta seeks to promote a high standard of excellence in all aspects of Fraternity life and prides itself on acting as a leader within the Greek community. Risk management policies are in place to protect our Fraternity's rich history, but more importantly, the well-being of our members. The goals of Kappa Alpha Theta membership include, but are not limited to, the preparation of a woman to accept the responsibilities of Fraternity membership and the encouragement of a woman's personal development to meet the demands of a mature life. In accordance with these goals, Kappa Alpha Theta does not tolerate any acts that may be construed as hazing.

Kappa Alpha Theta is committed to educating our college chapters on how to minimize risk and manage risky behavior. One of the Fraternity's three aims is socially, the widest influence for good. By adhering to the Fraternity's risk management policies, members ensure they are representing the Fraternity's high ideals. As a member of FIPG, all Theta chapters must comply with the policies and procedures noted by FIPG. Some specific policies to note are:
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 be a member in good standing.
In addition, each chapter is expected to maintain accumulative grade point average above the All-Sorority Average (ASA) on its campus, and chapter bylaws shall establish specific grade requirements for chapter officers.
Each college chapter of the Fraternity shall have an advisory board that is responsible for the supervision of the college chapter and its well-being. The advisory board is organized to mirror the college chapter officer structure and to provide support to each collegiate office-holder. Chapter advisors are trained by Fraternity officers and staff, as it is Kappa Alpha Theta’s priority to ensure that the advisory board is current in all Fraternity policies and procedures.
