Hello Alumnae!

Philanthropy Events!

These Hands Don't Hurt

Alpha Kappa Lamdba, newly recolonized, asked us to help out with their philanthropy called These Hands Don't Hurt. We set up a 'wall' in the Union and people could donate money and pledge that their hands will not be used for domestic violence. They received a colored paper hand to write their name on it and place it on the 'wall'. We raised close to 600 dollars for the Crisis Center!

Who is the Chapter President?!


Alpha Chi Omega is so much more than our letters. To me, it represents laughter, support, sisterhood, unending friendships, and personal growth. If I did not join Alpha Chi Omega, I would not be half the woman I am today. It is these women I am surrounded by, who push me to be my best, to uphold my own values, and to strive for wellness. Each of them has had a unique impact on me, each other, and Alpha Chi Omega as a whole. They have pushed me to grow out of my comfort zone, and have transformed me into a woman of values and strength.
I'm so grateful that each of you have paved the way for Gamma Zeta.
