Kappa Pi: International Honorary Art Fraternity

Meredith College Art Department is proud to announce the establishment of a Kappa Pi chapter during the 2010-11 academic year. Kappa Pi was founded in 1911 at the University of Kentucky. What originally began as a study session where students could meet to critique and review their work has now come to be the oldest Honorary Art Fraternity in the United States. Kappa Pi has grown into an international organization that fosters students studying the arts. Students that have completed a total of 12 credit hours and hold a GPA of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) in art classes and a 2.0 overall GPA will be eligible for induction. The Meredith chapter of Kappa Pi, Theta Alpha, was founded in 2011 and follows in the steps of the founding members; students gather to discuss their own work, participate in community events and volunteer with enriching art activities.
