    First Wednesday of every month from 2:50-3:15 PM in the cafeteria.

    Requirements:
    Junior or Senior, 4.5 or greater GPA, 8 hours of service per semester to include an ISP (Individual Service Project), and exemplary character. Members must attend all meetings, complete service hours, and meet all deadlines.
