Community service is an integral part of OXE!


Members of Omega Chi Epsilon are committed to giving back to our neighboring communities.  Because of this, community service is a requirement for membership.  There are a wide variety of service projects that OXE members volunteer for throughout each semester, allowing members to easily fulfill the requirement.  In addition, these projects are a great way to get to know your fellow OXE members and have some fun while making a difference!

All prospective members are required to attend 2 community service events.
All active members are required to attend 1 community service event per semester.
