Chapter Highlight
Chapter Highlight – Angelo State University
The Mu Gamma Chapter does a wonderful job of increasing their chapter recognition on campus and in the community. Participating in the annual Homecoming parade, sponsoring a highway, creating bulletin boards and door decorations, maintaining active social media accounts, and hosting multiple events each semester provide a wealth of recruitment opportunities for new members. Their initiation, which includes a formal banquet with guest speakers in a beautiful setting, is a highlight of the year!
