What is the time commitment like?
There is definitely a time commitment, but there are also so many benefits, like leadership and networking opportunities, academic support, and lifelong friendships! As a chapter, believe that you get out what you put in, so we encourage our sisters to get involved not just in our chapter, but in other organizations on Campus as well.
We have weekly Chapter meetings every Sunday night that and have events supporting our philanthropies each semester that are mandatory. We also participate in other chapter's philanthropy events as much as possible. We have many volunteering and service opportunities throughout the Spring and Fall semesters. Including fun sisterhood activities weekly, that is optional.
What are the grade requirements?
Delta Nu has a 2.6 GPA requirement to be in good standings in the chapter. Sigma Kappa recognizes that education is the primary purpose of the collegiate experience and strives to provide resources to all members in reaching their academic goals. We provide motivation and assistance for our sisters to help them develop their fullest academic potential and plan for a successful future. As such, our chapter requires that each member attends a certain amount of Study Hours each week, based on that member's GPA.
What are the financial responsibilities?
Sigma Kappa is a not-for-profit corporation and relies on the national fees from its members to finance yearly operating expenses and chapter services. Your daughter will be provided with a detailed breakdown of all the financial responsibilities should she join our chapter. We understand that it can be overwhelming at first, but it is definitely manageable. If needed, payment plans can be arranged between a member and our Vice President of Finance.
We value and understand any parent's questions or concerns. If you have any additional questions, please contact our chapter president at Kaityln.Ketchum@live.longwood.edu
