The Christian Brothers University (CBU) Tennessee Theta chapter of Alpha Chi is dedicated to serving the Memphis community! A national honor society that is open to all majors, Alpha Chi collected over 400 lbs. of food for the Mid-South Food Bank, along with other schools and organizations, at the end of the spring semester in May.
In addition over the past year, Alpha Chi collected and donated several hundred new and used books for Reading is Fundamental. The books were distributed in the Memphis area to: Headstart, Snowden Clue Program, and Caritas Village. It was rewarding for the members of Alpha Chi to see that when the books were delivered to these organizations, people started going through them.
For this year, Alpha Chi along with Sigma Tau Delta, and the Black Student Association at CBU are spearheading the Toys for Tots through November 2. After Thanksgiving the Chapter will again begin collecting books for Reading is Fundamental.
Alpha Chi is a general honor society, admitting students from all academic disciplines that are among the top 10% of that institution’s juniors, seniors and graduate students. There are 300 chapters nationwide and more than 11, 000 members are inducted annually.
