UCF’s Panhellenic Council recently hosted the Academic Banquet, where more than 100 Panhellenic members celebrated their academic achievements over the past two semesters. The recognition emphasized academic excellence and those who excelled as leaders among the community.

The 12 chapters were represented and networked with other chapters over dinner and dessert. The Panhellenic Council GPA has been above all women’s average GPA for 34 semesters and continues to strive for that success in the upcoming semesters.

The scholarship winners for $250 for a new member who were active in the community were, Julie Luo – Delta Zeta and Kimberly Hall – Chi Omega. Alpha Epsilon Phi won the Most Unique Study Incentive.

Erin Kelly from Delta Zeta won the Spotlight a Sister award. This award is given to a chosen sister highlighted from the chapter’s academic chair for her academic endeavors and leadership involvement.

Other awards included:

  • Best Overall Academic Programming to Gamma Phi Beta
  • Most Improved GPA to Alpha Delta Pi
  • Highest Fall 2014 GPA to Chi Omega
  • Highest Fall 2014 New Member GPA and Highest Spring 2015 GPA to Kappa Delta
  • “I really enjoyed coming together as a Panhellenic community and learning what other chapters do to help better their academics,” said Jess Stern, vice president of programming for Alpha Epsilon Phi. “My chapter and I were honored to win the Most Unique Study Incentive as we worked really hard to get good grades in fun and different ways.”
