Kappa Pi Art Honorary


The Zeta Alpha Kappa chapter of the Kappa Pi Art Honorary was established at Millsaps in Fall 2003, spearheaded by art major Leslie Aldridge who graduated in 2004. Kappa Pi, the international honorary organization for studio and art history students, began in 1911 at the University of Kentucky. Our chapter is dedicated to promoting artistic and academic excellence in the Millsaps Art Department and strengthening the community of students who are dedicated to the visual arts. Beginning in 2012, student members, who are elected annually, must have met the following requirements:

  • at least 12 hours of art courses at Millsaps 
  • a minimum average GPA of 3.2 in their art courses at Millsaps
  • a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0
