    Boy Scouts: Troop 1650

     

    Through the $25,000 Pepsi Refresh Grant Mu Alpha won in 2010, Mu Alpha has been developing close relationship with the Boy Scouts of American in the DC area. Every Saturday, Mu Alpha members travel down to South East DC and assist the scouts of Troop 1650 achieve the rank of Eagle Scout. Mu Alpha also hold Youth Service Day for the scouts of Troop 1650 where the scouts are brought down to Georgetown for a day on campus and workshops on merit badges.

     



    Food & Friends

    Mu Alpha volunteers every Monday for Food and Friends, an organization that prepares, packages and delivers meals and groceries to more than 1500 people living with HIV/AIDS and other life-challenging illnesses such as breast, lung and colon cancer throughout the greater Washington metropolitan area.

    Samaritan Inns

    Samaritan Inns is a program that works in conjunction with a recovery house for men and women recuperating from chemical addictions. Brothers and sisters provide Saturday dinner for the residents, interacting with them as they strive to overcome the scourge of addiction. A lot of work goes into making sure the daily schedule runs smoothly, and Mu Alpha is there to help.

     



    Van Rides

    In keeping with our tradition of service to Georgetown, the Van Escort Service provides students who live off-campus with a safe way home. Vans leave the Lauinger Library steps on the hours of 10pm, 11pm, 12am, and 1am. We also leave as late as 2 am during the final exam periods in December and May.


     

     


     

    Chapter Advisors

    Alumni of Mu Alpha have traditionally served as official fraternity advisors since the chapter's inception.  Chosen from among faculty, staff, and the community, there has never been a shortage of Mu Alpha alumni who have been willing to serve the chapter in an advisory capacity. 

    Mu Alpha alumni have also served as advisors of other chapters, including Eta Phi at American University.

     



    Grace's Table

    Every Saturday, 4-5 Alpha Phi Omega brothers gather at Grace Episcopal Church in between M & K on Wisconsin for Grace's Table. We help to prepare a lunch for the local homeless community, eat and spend time with them, and participate in a Bible Study together.
