Good news! Finals have come to an end, so we can finally take a breath of fresh air and get out of the library. But first, a reflection on why we were there in the first place. Scholarship is an important ideal in our chapter and sorority, which is made self-evident each semester by all the Thetas seen studying around campus. Last semester, 18 women in our chapter received 4.0 GPAs and 102 women received above a 3.5 GPA. Since it is something worth celebrating, we honored all of them at our scholarship banquet. Our scholarship director, Brielle Bright, said, “Scholarship being Theta's highest aim means that I always have someone to motivate me to do my best in school, since that's why we're in college in the first place. Bettie, Bettie, Hannah, and Alice created Theta to be a support system for college women, and academic was definitely part of that.”
There are many reasons why we value scholarship. The overarching reason is that higher education is what we are here for. College is a time for discovery, exploration, and service, but at graduation we are handed a diploma for what we learned. So, congratulations ladies of the Eta Omega chapter, way to complete (and complete well) what you set out to do.
We are the Eta Omega chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta at Saint Louis University. We were established on November 9th, 2013. We have over 180 wonderful sisters that are alike in many ways but all with unique interests. Our blog will highlight many of these.
