Epsilon Chi Website

The link above will take you to the website I created for the Epsilon Chi chapter of Alpha Delta Pi.  I worked with Celect, a website domain company, to develop the graphic art for the site.  I was then responsible for filling in all content areas. The website is meant to target our chapter's alumni members, potential new members, parents, and friends.  Enjoy!
