Some goals we have for the new school year include achieving a 3.0 chapter GPA, completing 1,200 hours of community service, and raising $2,000 for our primary philanthropies.

It is our aim to get back to this level of excellence. To that end, new academic programming has been established to promote quality work in the classroom. e programming includes incentives, such as half-off dues for a 4.0 GPA.
