Excellence & Loyalty

Although it may sound a bit cliché, we truly believe there is nothing more important than good health. Because of this, we have chosen men’s health as our national philanthropy. Our chapters have promoted men’s health in a number of ways, including setting up informational booths on campus, organizing public discussion groups, fundraising for cancer research, and working with charities that aim to raise awareness for men’s health, such as Movember.
