This past Summer, 6 members of the Upsilon chapter were selected by the other members to attend the Theta Tau National Convention. While there, they were able to converse with other chapters and gain some new ideas to implement back home. Overall, they all had an amazing experience in the beautiful city of San Diego and were able to reconnect with former member turned regional director: Samantha Cloud.

Regionals this semester was hosted by our bothers from Oklahoma State University. Many members, as well as a majority of the pledges at the time, attended.
We hosted a great Halloween party this semester as well!
Many members participated in Make A Difference Day. This day is devoted to community service and offers many events to choose from that better our community. Most members helped to clean up the trails of Fayetteville and sort donations for a thrift shop dedicated to local charities. In the picture above, the three volunteers to the furthest right are the members who participated in one of the many trail section clean ups.
