Once again this spring, the composite all-Greek and all-cooperative grade point average has exceeded the all-undergraduate average in statistics released this week.

The combined GPA from all fraternity, sorority and cooperative members was 3.12 for the spring semester, while the all-undergraduate average was 3.03. It marked the ninth consecutive semester that the Greek and cooperative community grades exceeded the campus average.

Among the four groups that represent 6,639 undergraduate students in the Greek system – 21.3 percent of the total undergraduate population – sororities led the way with a 3.26 average.

The four groups fall in the following governing councils:

• Interfraternity Council, 3.00 average GPA, with an average chapter size of 86 members from 40 groups.

• Multicultural Greek Council, 3.02 GPA, 13 average membership from 10 chapters.

• National Pan-Hellenic Council, 2.69 GPA, nine average membership from nine chapters.

• Panhellenic Association, 3.26 PGA, 125 average membership from 21 chapters.

The fraternity, sorority and cooperative system also contributed 46,536 community service hours and raised $355,049 for philanthropic causes, according to the report. For the school year, the system raised $1.16 million for charitable causes.

And the Purdue fraternity, sorority and cooperative community has 92 organization members, more than any other Big Ten university.

• Alpha Chi Omega, 851 David Ross Road, had the highest GPA among community members with a 3.45 average from 129 members.
