Different Paths to Finding Our Home in Alpha Chi Omega


Hi! I’m Camden O’Donnell, a freshman from Tampa, Fl. I always knew when I joined Alpha Chi Omega I would meet lots of great girls and make a ton of new friends. I thought that building the relationships would take time. However, I never realized how quickly our bonds would develop, and how much immediate support I’d receive. The girls are always so positive and uplifting, which has created such a safe space for me. There are also always fun activities and socials planned, which has allowed me to meet and get more connected to others at UF. The relationships I’ve developed are certain to be lifelong friendships. I am forever grateful for the friendships I’m making and the sisters I have!


Hi! My name is Natalia Llanso, and I’m a freshman business major from Miami. I joined Alpha Chi Omega this spring as a COB. Prior to this, I had thought that going through formal recruitment was the only way to truly form bonds with your sisters, but I was so wrong. The COB process gave me the chance to get to know the girls and the chapter in a more natural, relaxed setting, which I am grateful for. I knew what I was looking for in a sorority, and when I accepted Alpha Chi’ Omega's bid, my status changed to “New Member” and I couldn’t contain my excitement. I started going to meals, hanging out at the house, and really bonded with the girls in my MC. Chapter Monday’s and New Member Meeting Thursday’s became a routine I looked forward to. I’ve become friends with girls who make me laugh and above all, are genuine. I’ve not only made connections with girls in my MC, but in the ones above me. Soph Uribe, my new member educator, is just one of many who have made my transition into Alpha Chi Omega so great. Among these role models are Taylor Sawyer, Grace Carlon, Nicole Straight, Jordan Nocera and so many more. They make me want to strive to do better and become more involved, in and out of campus life. Joining Alpha Chi Omega has been the best thing to happen to me in my time at UF, and I wouldn’t change the COB process for anything. I can’t wait to see what my future in this chapter holds!


With Love,

Two Sisters of Alpha Chi Omega
