Welcome! 

I hope everyone has had a good semester so far. I would love for people to get more involved and reach out to want to join Phi Alpha. I am hoping to pull in some new members and start to become apart of our community. We will be doing volunteer work for the community. I am available via email at wilcoxk5@ferris.edu or text at 517-719-1975. I would love to hear from some new members. 

Thank you!!!

Meeting Details

What else should people know about your meetings? Do you only meet once a month? Do attendees need to be added to an agenda? Is the location hard to find? If attendees need ADA accommodations, whom should they contact?

We are trying to build up this RSO. We would like to make it easy for members to attend meetings, our plan is to have our meetings online. These will be once a week or once a month. This will depend on the number of members. I am planning on using a video chat or maybe do a group text. We shall see what happens.
