Although our scholarship program is brand new, it is working very well!
The main component of our scholarship program is the Pearl System, which is a system based on members’ GPAs that determines how many “pearls” one has to get each week. Members can get pearls in a variety of ways, including attending study hours, filling out study guides, getting A’s on tests, or visiting professors! The Pearl System was made with all different types of girls in mind, and is always flexible in order to ensure that everyone’s study styles are included.
Some other programs within the scholarship program are the mentoring program, Smarty Panties, and the A Box.
The mentoring program is a system set up so that girls with lower grades can meet with members of the scholarship committee to discuss study skills, time management techniques, and other useful strategies to help them improve their grades.
Smarty Panties is a $15 giftcard to Victoria’s Secret given out every 2 weeks to the member with the most extra pearls.
The A Box is a $5 giftcard given to a member whose name is drawn randomly after receiving an A on something (whether it be test, paper, quiz, lab, etc.) during the previous week.
The Epsilon Mu held a Honors Banquet at the beginning of the spring semester to celebrate our members who made it onto the Dean’s List for the Fall 2012 semester. Those ladies were:
