Playbill: Academics


“They aim for academic excellence, keeping in mind the importance of education and learning as the key to strength, awareness, and fulfillment.


  • At Columbia University, we pride ourselves in our ability to represent Kappa Phi Lambda actively on campus while maintaining our reputation as scholars. Many of our sisters go above and beyond by taking on double majors, having minor concentrations, and participating in pre-professional programs.
  • Our chapter emphasizes the importance of learning, scheduling frequent “Kappa Kram” sessions in Butler and Lerner. On any given night, we can be found studying together in random classrooms, libraries, and each other’s dorm lounges around campus.
  • Our alumni have all been successful in obtaining post-graduation jobs and acceptance to post-undergraduate academic programs. They help us prepare for job interviews, advise us in our career goals, and act as inspiration and role models for us.


  • Our sisters are diverse in their academic interests, which range from the humanities to the sciences, and visual media to engineering. Columbia sisters represent all four of the undergraduate schools on campus—the Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science, Columbia College, Barnard College, and the School of General Studies.
  • Our chapter consistently holds one of the top three grade point averages out of the Multicultural Greek Council organizations.
    Last year we had the highest GPA of the sororities on campus.

  • After the Spring 2008 semester, our chapter’s average GPA was a 3.4. In April of 2008, Columbia’s Multicultural Greek Council recognized our accomplishments by presenting us with the Academic Achievement Award at our annual Greek formals.
