Home (Away from Home) for the Holidays
Hey guys! With the holidays coming to an end, many of the Alpha Xi's are returning to Austin in preparation for the new semester. While a lot of us were home for the holidays, spending time with family and friends, many of our sisters traveled out of the city, state, and even country! Let's take a look at where they went...
