Fraternities and sororities all strive for excellence in many areas, especially academics. They can help students to focus on academics by providing scholarship incentives and programs which include study partners, study hours, resume and time management workshops. At W&J, our greek students definitely achieve this with an All-Greek GPA average of a 3.09.
Washington and Jefferson College is also host to the Zeta Kappa chapter of Gamma Sigma Alpha, a national greek academic honor society for juniors and seniors with above an overall GPA of 3.5.
W&J Fraternity & Sorority Life Best Practices that support academics include:
- Phi Kappa Psi has a service based scholarship available to any first year man attending W&J. The Letterman & Moore Scholarship is a $250 scholarship awared to one first year man to use at the W&J Bookstore. Applications will be available and are due every fall semester.
- Study with a Phi. Brothers of Phi Delta Theta open their house on Monday nights at 9pm to any student who wants to join them while they study a wide range of academic courses.
- Kappa Alpha Theta has a yearly Apple Polishing where they invite 20 faculty and staff to a delectable dinner. Topics of conversation are varied but often times include discussions about future career choices.
- Kappa Kappa Gamma recognizes a faculty member each month through a Faculty of the Month award.
- Phi Gamma Delta (FIJI) hosts an annual Carrer Night where they invite Chapter Alumni from the fields of law, medicine, business and education to answer your questions about any career chocies you have.
