Why AXΩ?


There are a vast amount of benefits to being Greek. There are also many Greek and women’s organizations to choose from.
So, “Why Alpha Chi”?

Here are ten principal reasons why Alpha Chi Omega is right for us and might be right for you.

1. You get to be you.

We’re about real and genuine.  We are free to express ourselves knowing we have the support of our sisters.

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 are dedicated to our academics, community service and leadership opportunites, however, all work and no play makes for dull women!  We always enjoy the company of our sisters and make every moment memorable.

4. You get to make meaningful, lasting friendships.

There’s no better way to meet people than by living and working with the ladies that change lives and enhance the world.  The bond between sisters is an everlasting love that is unexplainable.   

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

Our academic standards often exceed those set by colleges, universities and other organizations. Our programs and positive support for our members help meet those standards ensure success academically.  Greek men and women often have a higher average GPA than those who are non Greek due to the high standard of academic programming.  

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

Those friendships we mentioned? They do not end after college.  They do not end with your immediate housemates. We’ve initiated more than 200,000 women. That is a career and life-stage network that will help you forever.

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

Colleges and universities can be great for academic learning, but they don’t always have time for all they would like to teach about life and leadership. Alpha Chi will soon supplement that classroom learning with a powerful four-year program designed to enhance lives and careers.  There are many leadership opportunities within the chapter, such as executive positions and other impotant roles.  Those positions are fantastic resume builders that provide experience that graduate schools and employers are looking for. 

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 another sister. 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!  You also get the opportunity to give back to the community through service and philanthropy events.

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.
