We raise large amounts of donations for an assortment of philanthropic causes; many of our chapters participate in community service projects throughout the year as well. There are educational programs, speakers, discussions, and a host of leadership opportunities to be had. You will have the ability to get involved in many aspects of campus life, including intramurals, religious services, academic support, cultural programming, personal and professional development, and leadership development.
