                              Merit Awards
Any pledge or active member that goes above and beyond what is
expected has an opportunity to achieve a merit award. The merit
award is a high honor that all pledges and active members should
strive to earn.

                          Senior Recognition
To be recognized as an outstanding senior with Kappa Delta Pi, you
must average 4 points per active semester. By setting this high
standard, the officers hope to ensure that active members will continue
to participate in Kappa Delta Pi events.

                               Honor Cords
CORDS. The points of your graduating peers determine honor cords.
This simply means that those three active members graduating,
who have earned the highest number of points, will be awarded honor
cords upon graduation paid by ETA Chapter. Any active member may
purchase honor cords from the KDP Store at
