* Spring 2020 grades were a bit inflated throughout campus due to in-person classes being canceled after spring break. Historically, the chapter ranks in the Top 10 and prior semester statistics can be found here.
** Due to the cancelation of in-person classes after spring break, 1 of our 2 major service-hour events and fund-raiser was not held.
