The Gamma-Rho Advisory Boards mission is to ensure that the undergraduate chapter, and especially the officers and committee chairs, receive advice as needed. The goal is to see that every officer and key committee chair has an advisor/mentor overseeing them, and that at least one advisor is at every active and new member (pledge) meeting.
If you are interested in serving as the Alumnus Advisor or one of our Assistant Alumnus Advisors, please email Matt Noble or call 520-990-3250.
