Statement about COVID-19 – Hello FSL community members, we understand that this is an unprecedented and difficult time for you personally, your chapters, and our community. We thrive on social connection and have built a community that is deeply rooted in the relationships with each other. We know that there have been countless things that have had to change because of the COVID-19 pandemic. While the rest of the semester will not look or feel the same as you may have imagined it to be, we hope that this community can provide you with some virtual connection and engagement as the spring semester wraps up. This is a great time to reach out to your brothers and sisters, to connect on a variety of levels, and to get a jump start on the planning of your summer and fall. We encourage you to continue to meet as chapters, and as leadership, to ensure that we come out of this as a strong community with a clear picture of where we are going in the fall.
