The Beta Xi Chapter of Alpha Sigma Tau participates in various local community service projects and are required to achieve 10 service hours on their own time each semester.

Girls on The Run

This year, in collaboration with Phi Kappa Tau, our chapter hosted our first annual Tau Trot philanthropy 5k. Runners were able to run through Houghton and Hancock, or take the virtual option and run from afar on a route of their choice! All proceeds were split in half to go toward Girls on The Run and The Serious Fun Children's Network. Head on over to our Tau Trot website to learn more about it!

Adopt-A-Highway

As the Beta Xi Chapter, we have adopted a strip of the US-41 Highway in Calumet, MI. Adopt-A-Highway, a Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) program, is designed to help keep the state's highway roadsides clean and attractive. Once a semester our sisters travel to the highway to pick up trash and debris.  

Copper Country Humane Society

One of the services we do is walk dogs for the local Humane Society. Walking dogs and helping with basic obedience is rewarding and fun for both the sisters and the dogs. Not to mention that the trails surrounding the shelter are beautiful!

 

Habitat for Humanity

Our partnership with Habitat for Humanity allows sisters to volunteer alongside the Copper Country Habitat for Humanity. As volunteers, our sisters help build, do critical repairs, volunteer at the ReStore, help with fundraisers, and more!

Each Spring, a group of our sisters take part in a Spring Break Habitat for Humanity trip hosted by the Michigan Tech Chapter of Habitat for Humanity. Sisters have been able to travel all around the country to help families build and improve places to call home, while also getting to know other college students from around the country who are also are wanting to help create happier, healthier homes.

Take a look below at a few of the past Spring Break trips!
