- To begin, the journey to Alpha Land is not for everyone. Contact the member of the Epsilon Iota chapter
that you are closest to, and they will further advise you. If you do not know anyone in the chapter
personally, then contact the current Membership Intake Chair to gain more information. There are
several requirements to become a member of this illustrious fraternity and as members of this chapter,
we can advise you best on how to become a member yourself.
- Why are there only a handfull of community service programs thrown each year?
- Our participation in bettering our community starts first with those less fortunate. Often times,
we perform service without prior publication of our activities. We mostly do work with the greater
Austin area and can often be seen in places such as the Boys & Girls Club, the Austin Area
Food Bank, or in different nursing homes around the city.
