Sigma Omicron Chapter at University of Illinois

Kappa Delta

Academic Excellence

Academics are a top priority for Kappa Delta. The sorority provides members with the resources they need to be their best. 

Each chapter’s academic support program is customized by the chapter and its advisors. Programming options include study sessions, mentoring members in the same major, individual tutoring, incentives for good grades and more. Further, chapters hold an Academic Success Seminar at least twice during the year. Kappa Delta’s academic excellence focus is designed to grow with members throughout their college years, as their needs and areas of concern evolve.

The Kappa Delta Foundation supports our commitment to academics by awarding nearly $450,000 in graduate and undergraduate scholarships, leadership trainings, internships and professional development opportunities each year to Kappa Delta sisters across the nation. These scholarships have been made possible through gifts, funds and bequests to the Kappa Delta Foundation. Visit Kappa Delta’s national website for more information on scholarship opportunities and the application process.


Academic success remains a top priority for Sigma Omicron. In the past few years, we have managed to raise our overall grade point average as a chapter. We have a stellar Academic Excellence committee which works closely with our officers to develop plans for fostering an educational environment and an academic support system for our members. We hold study hours multiple times a week as well as competitions and activities that encourage academic success.
