It has been a long, long time coming, but it’s here! Founders Day Weekend is back and bigger than ever. Take this opportunity to get with brothers, friends, and the Undergraduate chapter what better opportunity, especially after how difficult the past 18 months have been on all of us. Plus, we have some EXCITING news, updates, and information to share with everyone. With less than three weeks left until brothers, families, friends, and distinguished guests join us in Austin for the time-honored tradition of Founders Day, we are excited to announce some of the additional details for the weekend.
Here is the schedule of events:

Whether it’s your first Founders Day weekend, or you haven’t been in years, to the folks that make it each and every year, we promise this will be the best one yet. This is an opportunity to see all of the exciting things happening with Texas Alpha and catch up with your chapter brothers in a variety of settings.
