Although service is an integral part of the Fraternity, our Members continuously go above and beyond when finding ways to better their local communities. While completing community service projects, Collegiate Members develop real-world life skills that help them develop in a multitude of ways. 

Giving back is an important part of preparing our Members to take responsibility as open minded, principled citizens in a global community. These traits coupled with compassion and undeniable work ethic are beyond evident in a few service pieces highlighted below.

Gamma Xi President Christopher Lee said "The Philadelphia community is an important piece to our Chapter, and we want to give back whenever and however we can.” The Chapter is very lucky to have a passionate Service Chair, Dan Lokic who worked with Members Anna Le and Matthew Taing to complete the beautifucation event.
