Academics are very important at Gamma Iota. Every night of the week, you can find studious members studying in the library, formal living room, or dining room. We are proud to continuously maintain a GPA above both the all women's average and the sorority average!
As sorority women, we find that there is a huge academic benefit to participating in Greek Life. Our chapter has members in majors from biomedical engineering to apparel design, so there is always another sister available to help answer a question. Also, our members help each other find the best classes to take and recommend the professors they enjoyed the most, which comes in handy when registering for classes each semester!
Our chapter supports academic development through several programs. These programs serve to motivate members and recognize sisters for their academic achievement.
Gamma Iota Academic Programs
Every member of our chapter is assigned an academic mentor shortly after accepting their bid. These mentors are an older sister in thier major or a similar major. Mentors help other members select classes, answer questions on homework, and give members advice for exams.
Apple Polishing Dinner
Every semester, our chapter recognizes the academic achievement of our members by hosting a formal Apple Polishing Dinner. Sisters invite their favorite professors to attend this special occasion. Last year, our chapter was visited by our university president, Mitch Daniels!
