There are a handful of initiatives in place to encourage sisters to keep grades as a priority during the school year. These include incentives like the smarty pants jar for getting an A on an assignment, the no skippy jar for not skipping class, treats for making deans list or 4.0s, and more. There is also programming to promote studying for classes throughout the semester through coordinating study hour times with sisters or creating study hour competitions among pledge classes.There is an Academic workshop every semester. Last spring, a representative from the career center was invited to speak about resume building.
