Pi Beta Phi values intellectual excellence.
Pi Beta Phi's goal regarding academics is to help members realize, pursue, achieve their academic goals in their chosen fields. This includes encouraging each individual Pi Phi chapter to pursue academic excellence.
In all Pi Beta Phi Fraternities it is believed that scholarship performance is dependent on personal motivation and desire. With the aid and support of chapter activities, Pi Beta Phi helps to support success early in one's academic career. Academic programming will focus on providing the tools and support you need to achieve success. Every chapter should strive toward being at or above the 'all women's average' GPA at their respective universities.
There is also Scholarship Awards available to all members of Pi Beta Phi in order to help many Pi Phi's achieve their dreams of completing their formal educations. More information about scholarships can be found on the Pi Beta Phi Foundation website. Scholarship page for Pi Beta Phi
The Chapter of Colorado Delta:
The Colorado Delta chapter of Pi Beta Phi places great emphasis, standards, and importance on the academic careers of its members. The Colorado School of Mines is a difficult institution and Colorado Delta understands this and aids members academic success in many ways. The chapter requires study hours and holds study sessions at the house and also provides every member with a 'Link Family'.
What is a 'Link Family'?
A Link Family is the term used for the Colorado Delta academic mentoring program. Generally a member is placed into a group with other older members who study in the same field who will help mentor and tutor their younger counterparts. This allows not only an opportunity to expand and heighten a members success in their academic careers, but also fosters sisterhood, sincere friendship, and intellectual and personal growth. A Link Family will provide you with:
- Promotion, protection, and visibility
- The opportunity to help you develop skill and knowledge you may not even know you posses
- An increased chance of success and satisfaction in your academic career
- Friends for the rest of your life!
