Alpha Xi Delta inspires sisters to reach their potential in all aspects of their lives, including academics! This past semester, over half of our chapter achieved above a 3.5 GPA, and more than forty of our sisters received 4.0's! As a chapter, we always work hard to encourage academic success. Whether that means going on study dates around town, stopping in Radina's for a cup of coffee before class, or even attending the provided study hours Alpha Xi Delta offers, we can always count on our sisters for support!
In Alpha Xi Delta, we make academic recognition one of our top priorities. We currently have an incentive plan “smarty pants” where sisters submit tests, quizzes or papers on which they received an A into a drawing for a gift card to places such as Victoria’s Secret, Texas Roadhouse, Sonic and many more. We also like to recognize our sisters who achieve a 3.5 GPA or above by gifting them an academic pearl for their quill. This pearl symbolizes that members have achieved an outstanding recognition in the standard of academics, and it's highly respected among the chapter. There is also a scholarship given to all members who receive a 4.0 each semester they do so!
To ensure that academics are always at the forefront of our sisters’ minds we share proven strategies for academic success on a weekly basis. Despite our sisters studying a variety of different fields, they all come together to encourage one another in academic endeavors. This chapter has continued to raise the bar each year, and we hope to continue this momentum to further improve our sisters’ academic achievements this semester!
