Beta Kappa prides itself on hosting a variety of events throughout the academic year.

While the exact events vary, we generally host Meet & Greet socials at the beginning of each semester. Other outreach events include movie nights on the Aderhold Promenade, where we invite the UGA community to paricipate in a forum discussion on an educational topic followed by screening a related film. From time to time, we also invite students, facult, and staff to engage in panel discussions over relevant topics in education. We also participate in KDP Nationa's LiteracyAlive! service initiative every year.
