While members of our community are engaged in a wide variety of areas here at KSC, they are students first and foremost. All fraternities & sororities regard their education as a shared value. In addition, to the various academic support systems offered by the college, each organization also provides services and support to not only help those members that may be struggling, but also recognize the accomplishments of their members.
Academic success continues to be an area of focus for our community as they seek to improve themselves and their organizations. Below, you can access community academic information for recent semesters:

Councils and chapters, as well as the inter/national organizations, provide programs and incentives for academic success. Numerous scholarships are awarded annually by chapters, councils, and the inter/national organizations for high academic success or for academic improvement. Programs are held with new members to discuss how to manage their time effectively and increase their study skills. Chapters also develop study tables and tutoring programs to assist their members.
