Hello Members! Xi Gamma's E.Board met recently to talk about goals for this Fall. We're still celebrating our chapter's success last semester (Did you miss it? See our July issue for the inside scoop! https://www.smore.com/2m431)!


As usual, you can trust us to build upon the enthusiasm to bring you targeted programs which cover hot-topics in education, promote self-care in professional development, and address social and community-oriented investment.
