#THISISHOME because being a chapter-woman of Alpha Chi Omega means you’re not just joining a sorority, you’re joining a family. Each Alpha Chi Omega can depend on one another to be there through it all – whether she is a study buddy, a running partner, or a bridesmaid - the bond is for life! Being an Alpha Chi Omega sister means that you’re among women who share the same values, interests, and ambitions as you and who provide an unbreakable connection that will extend well past your college years.
Dear Potential New Members of 2019,
It is with great honor that I write this letter to all of you, wishing you the absolute best experience during formal recruitment. I remember how intense the experience is, and how it can be a complete whirlwind of ups and downs. I implore you to take detailed notes of each house, especially noting how it makes you feel. From the inspiring mind of Maya Angelou, we may not remember what was said or what happened, but we will always remember how someone made you feel. In my experience, Alpha Chi Omega makes me feel empowered. It makes me feel welcomed, comfortable, and that I belong to a home away from home.
Our members embody the motto of Real. Strong. Women. Within the walls of Alpha Chi Omega, I found peace and safety during the most difficult of times, as well as blissful joy and laughter on countless occasions.
Within the walls of Alpha Chi Omega is a sisterhood incomparable to others. This house is where you can feel at ease to walk up to any lunch table, take a seat and strike up a memorable conversation with any of the 250 incredible women who call themselves Alpha Chi Omegas. This house is where you will watch movie marathons, indulge on ice cream bars, pasta bars, and brunch. This house is where you study, curl up for naps in-between classes, and binge watch Vine compilations. This house is where we will do life together, and continuously work towards empowering one another to be professional and unstoppable.
This house is a place, but the sisterhood is a home to many, and we are always ready to make more feel welcomed.
-Madeleine Wright, Alpha Chi Omega President
