The Alpha Rho Pi Chapter prides itself on being active not only on campus but throughout the community. Via tremendous effort and enthusiasm the chapter volunteers for the many Traverse City festivals such as the Traverse City Film Festival, Winter Fest, National Cherry Festival, and so much more. Alpha Rho Pi also concentrates much of their efforts towards student and campus centered projects that change yearly. From their involvement, members and officers gain life experiences and skills, opportunities are opened, and long-lasting friendships are forged.
