Academics & Scholarship
Alpha Gamma Delta establishes a strong academic foundation for all members and encourages them to reach for their best. Our Academic Excellence Team provides members with resources and motivation to excel. They also keep members current on available scholarships, study abroad programs, tutoring assistance, job interview and resume skills training, internships and career counseling.
Academic success is celebrated in Alpha Gamma Delta—both as a group and individually. In addition to chapter-wide recognition for academic achievement, the Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation awards scholarships to more than 150 deserving sisters across the U.S. and Canada.
"To gain understanding that wisdom may be vouchsafed to me"
Our chapter is filled with sisters of vastly different majors here at Appalachian State University. Sisters are placed into groups with other sisters who share the same major or have a very similar major. This allows sisters to be able to talk to one another to make study groups, obtain help in certain classes that a sister may be in or have taken before, and allow for sisters to have a support system within their department.
Red, Buff and Green academic honor societies:
The Green Academic Society is presented to the women in recognition of the collegiate scholarship achievement in reaching between a 3.14 and a 3.49 grade point average over the previous semester. The Buff Academic Society is presented to the women in recognition of their collegiate scholarship achievement in reaching between a 3.50 and a 3.99 grade point average over the previous semester. The Red Academic Society is presented to the women in recognition of their collegiate scholarship achievement in reaching a 4.0 grade point average over the previous semester.
At the end of each month our sisters enter their A's and B's for that month to see who has the highest amount of A's and B's so they can be recognized for their work! If a sister has the most A's and B's that month she wins a gift from our Alpha Gam Boutique. At the end of each semester our sisters enter all of the A's they have received for that semester and submit it to our wonderful VP Scholarship in order to win a grand prize! If a sister has the most A's for the semester she is recognized for all of her hard work with a Special prize at the end of the semester!
