We are continuously making strides to be the best chapter we can by holding every member accountable for standing to our ideals and values not just in our chapter, but in everything they do.

We received this award for our member education program. Our new members receive a comprehensive education program prior to their initiation which includes programs to learn about our chapters values and history. We also have programming for the whole chapter such as an employment workshop during which a member from Susquehanna's Career Development Center gave us tips for writing a resume and nailing a first interview.
EXCELLENCE IN SCHOLARSHIP 2018
While the Panhellenic minimum GPA requirement is 2.4 we hold ours at 2.5. We ensure that our sisters strive to academic excellence by offering incentives for high grades and making dean's list, but also programming to ensure that our sisters are able to reach success. We reserve study rooms for our sisters during the semester to offer a quiet place to get work done as well as sharing sister's majors and minors to younger members so they can always reach out for help.
