Rho Kappa Chapter at Kent State University



Academic Excellence is a top priority for Phi Mu Fraternity.

In addition to our chapter's AMAZING 3.332 GPA, we are excited to announce our sisters standings on both the Deans and President's Lists! 58 women made the Deans List, which requires a GPA of 3.4 or above! More so, 13 women made the President's List, which requires a 4.0 GPA.

Phi Mu Foundation awards over $200,000 annually in graduate and undergraduate scholarships. 

Chapters who receive the highest GPA are recognized each biennium at Phi Mu's National Convention. 

Phi Mu Chapters are expected to reach and maintain the all women's grade point average on their campus. Those who meet the challenge are recognized in several ways including coverage in our magazine, the Aglaia.


Letter from our Academic Excellence Chair

Hi! My name is Katie and I am currently the academic chair for the Rho Kappa chapter of Phi Mu at Kent State University. With Phi Mu we understand that academics will always come first. Our chapter received third place out of seven sororities on campus in the previous two semesters. We consistently have women on the President’s list with 4.0s and the majority of our sisters end up on the Dean’s list.

At Kent State the Panhellenic Council sets a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 to allow women to go through recruitment. Within our sorority women have to maintain a 2.75 GPA. To help sisters achieve this goal we provide study tables where sisters can study in a quiet environment and while also able to ask for help if need be. We also have Studious Sister of the Week and I hand out prizes to women who make the Dean’s List or President’s List.

My role as Academic Excellence Chair is to help sisters who are struggling by reaching out because I believe with the right tools all of our members can reach their goals. I am available to provide help while also encouraging members to be the best they can be. We have many advisors besides me that will help to allow us to reach our fullest potential. We also have the Phi Mu Foundation available which awards over $100,000 in scholarships to sisters with a 3.0 or above every year. We are thrilled your daughter has chosen Phi Mu and if you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me.
