Why Alpha Chi?

Why Alpha Chi?

"Since day one, Alpha Chi has only required me to be myself. I  have developed a stronger sense of who I am, and who I want to be. I find myself surrounded by real, strong, role models who encourage and inspire me. Alpha Chi broke down every stereotype I had about Greek Life. I look around and realize that we fit no mold." -Carlee Welch Dick, Sophomore

"I love Alpha Chi because it has given me a sisterhood that will last a lifetime with girls who have helped me find somewhere I belong." -Jordan Goff, Senior

"When you join Alpha Chi, all of these amazing girls walk into your life and they support everything about you. You're not sure why or how you got lucky enough to find them, but you're so happy that you did!" -Sara Tall, Junior

"Because I found my best friends that inspire me, motivate me, and support me. They're my best friends, and Alpha Chi is my home." -Ambre Martochio, Senior

"Why Alpha Chi? Why NOT Alpha Chi?? Being in Alpha Chi, I've had the opportunity to make genuine friendships with such a unique group of young women that fill my heart with so much encouragement, love and laughter." -Haleigh Hayes, Sophomore

"I chose Alpha Chi because I grew up with a broken family, but Alpha Chi has given me a complete family!" -Kaytleen May, Senior

"Alpha Chi Omega has given me sisters and life-long best friends that support me no matter what. My sisters encourage me to step out of my comfort zone, and they make me want to be the best possible version of myself." -Brooke Boisseau, Junior

1. You get to be you.

We take pride in being real and genuine young women. 

2. You get to be strong.

We recruit strong, smart, compassionate, make-a-difference women. And our programs help develop them.

3. You get to have fun.

Yes, we’re serious about academics, community service and leadership. But all work and no play makes for dull women! 

4. You get to make meaningful, lasting friendships.

There’s no better way to meet people than by living and working with them to change lives and enhance the world.

5. You gain high educational standards and help to meet them.

Our academic standards exceed those set by the University, and our programs and positive support from our members meet those standards.

6. You get to forge and tap a network that lasts a lifetime.

Those friendships we mentioned? They don’t end with graduation. And they don’t end with your immediate housemates. Alpha Chi Omega has initiated more than 200,000 women. That’s a career and life-stage network that will help you for a long, long time.

7. You get a four-year collegiate learning and leadership development program.

Colleges and universities can be very good for academic learning, but they don’t always have time for all they’d like to teach about life and leadership. Alpha Chi will supplement that classroom learning with a powerful four-year program designed to enhance lives and careers.

8. You get lifelong engagement geared to your interests and life stages.

Alpha Chi Omega is not just about college. It’s about the interests and stages of your lifetime. It’s about sisters being there for one another during careers, marriages, mid-life crises, children, grandchildren, sickness, health, retirement, divorces, widowhood, 50th anniversaries, etc. It’s also about every hobby or interest you can imagine. If you’re going through a stage, someone else is too. If you have an interest, so does someone else. Our role is to help connect should you want the benefit of others’ counsel and camaraderie.

9. You get to give back.

Someone somewhere gave you your first break. Alpha Chi Omega and its Foundation give you ways to return the favor!

10. You get to make a difference in the world.

Whether you use your Alpha Chi training to change the world on your own, or through our chosen philanthropy, you’re better equipped as a learner and leader to take on the challenges you choose.
