Alpha Epsilon Phi has high expectations for all of our members in the area of academic achievement. Chapters are encouraged to plan sorority events and sisterhood activities while keeping in mind that the primary reason our members are in college is for academics.
In order to help members balance schoolwork and social activities, our chapters plan a comprehensive scholarship program, which may include daily or weekly study hours, mentor programs, study buddies and academic competitions. In addition, many chapters have older sisters who tutor younger sisters and new members in classes they have already taken.
To recognize and promote achievement in academics, chapters give small prizes or rewards to members who do well on a paper or exam, awarding the members with an edible 'smart cookie' award or each week announcing those sisters who made the 'smarty pants' list.
The Pearl Society is Alpha Epsilon Phi's academic honorary. Initiation into the Pearl Society is the ultimate individual academic honor an Alpha Epsilon Phi sister can receive. Membership in the Pearl Society is a prestigious honor which is highly respected by all members.
AEPhi is proud to say that many of our chapters have the highest combined GPA of all the sororities on their campuses. In fact, many exceed the all-sorority GPA, all-Greek GPA or the all-campus GPA!
