Anna Smith, a senior political science and communication studies major and member of the Xi Upsilon Chapter at Northeastern University, will join Teach for America and work in Dallas, Texas upon graduation. "Anna has been an amazing and thoughtful sister," said Kailyn Gaines, Vice President of Programs, "and has had lasting impact on our chapter and the larger Fraternity Sorority Life community, serving on our Executive Board as Vice President of Membership, Panhellenic executive board as Vice President of Recruitment, and winning the 2014 Woman of the Year award from Northeastern Fraternity and Sorority Life. She has been an unforgettable part of our chapter and we know she will continue to do unforgettable things with Teach for America!"
The Xi Upsilon Chapter hosted its annual Delta Draft-a-Date social with Northeastern University's chapter of Kappa Delta. Before the social, members of both sororities made cards to thank service members for their service to our country and to watch the movie, "Cadet Kelly."
"We're so grateful for the fun experiences and events we are able to participate in as a chapter, so it was important to us to reflect and take time to thank those who make this possible by keeping us safe," said Kailyn Gaines, Vice President of Programs.
Kailyn Gaines, a third year Political Science and Communication Studies major and Vice President of Programs for the Xi Upsilon Chapter at Northeastern University, was invited to participate in the National Collegiate Research Conference hosted by Harvard College, one of the two schools within Harvard University which grants undergraduate degrees, in January, 2016.
