Why Alpha Chi 

“I choose Alpha Chi Omega because each person in the chapter knows who they are and support each other no matter what. Whether it’s our academic life or personal goals, everyone has each other's backs and wants to help each other grow! Also, I absolutely love our philanthropy because domestic violence is a very important topic and is continuously being overlooked because many people aren’t aware of what it really is. I love each and every one of my sisters, it was really easy to find a home with the members of Alpha Chi Omega!”



Lauren Eliscu


“I chose Alpha Chi Omega because it had the most homey and welcoming atmosphere! I was able to have real conversations with women and connect with them on a special level. I also chose Alpha Chi Omega because I LOVE our philanthropy. Domestic violence is a huge topic that should not be overlooked or belittled and it’s so exciting to be a part of this amazing group of women that support such a good cause!”


Ellie Boeve

“I chose Alpha Chi Omega because when I first talked with some of the women, they were genuine conversations. The house was so welcoming and made me feel at home right away. I saw a chapter that will allow me to grow and women who wanted to support me as I wanted to do for them. I also love our philanthropy and all that it has taught the other women in the chapter and I how we can make a difference with our service and raise awareness for domestic violence through working with ACCESS. I love being a part of something bigger than myself and doing that with my amazing sisters!”

Taylor Poggemiller

“I came into Primary Recruitment blinder than the three blind mice and not even convinced that sorority life was for me. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that the recruitment process could have gone differently for me; I love Alpha Chi. The women I have been able to meet and spend time with are what convinced me that the chapter was the right fit for me. I have made amazing friends in women of all grades and many stages of life. For example, I love hanging out with the women in my member class and getting to know them and their unique personalities, that I may not have been introduced to if we all weren't connected through AXO. I am also blessed to serve on the philanthropy committee. Through this I get to see the beautiful hearts of service that every woman in Alpha Chi has and we all get to see the effect that we are able to have in our community through ACCESS. Alpha Chi is a chapter full of diverse and unique women whom I am so thankful to call sisters!”



Reagan Duwe


“I think it was fate that kept bringing me back to AXO because if I'm being honest I don't remember a single second of primary recruitment. What I do remember though is the amazing past 4 years that I have had as a part of the Delta Nu chapter of Alpha Chi Omega! I have made the most genuine lifelong friends, had so many fun experiences, and learned a lot along the way. It's sad to think that at the end of this semester my time as a collegiate member of Alpha Chi Omega will be coming to a close, but I know that the memories and friendships I have made here will last me a lifetime! The cliché saying really is the truth, it's not 4 years, it's for life! LITB forever!”
