Aggie Greek Community Releases Fall 2021 Report On Academics, Philanthropy
The Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life at Texas A&M University has released its fall 2021 Scorecard and Grade Report showcasing the efforts of the Aggie Greek community. The all-Greek GPA average was 3.331, higher than the undergraduate GPA of 3.156. Additionally, 32 of the 56 chapters had a GPA above the undergraduate average.
The Aggie Greek community is comprised of 5,778 members, making up roughly 11 percent of Texas A&M’s undergraduate population. Despite unconventional circumstances through the COVID-19 pandemic, Aggie Greeks made a difference in their communities through service hours (28,761) and philanthropic donations ($810,939).
“I am proud of the innovation and resilience of our students who have found a way to continue to serve the community during such uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Shanté Hearst, interim director of the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life. “Our student leaders worked diligently to bolster their relationships with our office, campus partners and city officials to ensure that the events they organized kept everyone as safe as possible. This is a true testament of their commitment to selfless service.”
Hearst said she is proud of how quickly her office was able to shift to streamline processes and operations to make their services more accessible to the large Greek community during the pandemic. “These organizations were, in-part, founded on a commitment to service,” she said, “so when challenges arose. their dedication and commitment to this principle motivated them to find ways to give back.”
Josh Brown, newly-appointed interim director of the Department of Student Activities, said these achievements demonstrate the commitment of the Aggie Greek community to the core values of Texas A&M.
The full report includes academic and membership data, completed community service hours, philanthropy dollars donated, awards received, and accountability information, which may also be found at aggiegreeks.tamu.edu. Due to the pandemic, many chapter events were canceled, which resulted in lower-than-average philanthropic and community service hours reported for the 2020-2021 academic year.
