Our Chapter

Members of the Baltimore Chapter have been together for decades and work, think, support and love each other as a family. They open their arms and hearts to all Hawks young, and the not so young. The Baltimore Chapter is always in the mode of giving and helping the university, other chapters, students and a major support to each other. The chapter continues to give monetary gifts every year during the homecoming. Additionally, chapter members are always in the posture of recruiting academically sound students to UMES.
