Academics & Grades

Balancing Greek life with academics

Pledging a sorority or fraternity and staying on top of your grades can be tough, but not impossible. Your grades may even improve, with the right amount of structure and support.

How to go Greek and keep your grades

  • Ask your sorority or fraternity for help. Your Greek brothers and sisters want to see you pass, so reach out if you need the extra help. Greek organizations can help you by offering scholarships, tutors, and time management programs. Some chapters also have mandatory study hours.
  • Don't skip class. While it’s not easy to wake up for an 8 a.m. class, it’s much harder to catch up on the lectures you missed.
  • Don't procrastinate. You never know when a mandatory event will ruin your plans to write a paper the night before it’s due. Be diligent and stay on top of your assignments.
  • Get some sleep. It is impossible to focus on anything if you’re sleep deprived.
