Alpha Xi Delta holds our members to the highest academic standard. We require that our sisters maintain a GPA of at least 2.5 and that they meet a certain number of points in an Academic Points Program.
The Academic Points Program is a new in chapter program that our academic achievement chair and our chapter advisor have developed to help keep girls motivated and on top of their academics. Each girl needs to make a certain amount of points per month based on their current GPA. Girls can earn points by doing a wide variety of things like studying in the library, tutoring another sister, attending study hours, or earning high marks on a test.
We also host weekly study sessions either within the library or in a private classroom for all of our sisters, where can ask for any help or get tutored by a fellow sister.
The academic points are tied into our merit points system, meaning that failure to make points could result in removal from office, and the revocation of certain privileges (usually of the social nature). However, the first three girls to make points get a prize, and have their accomplishments announced on Facebook.
