a letter FROM OUR VP RECRUITMENT
Thank you so much for your interest in joining the Columbia University Panhellenic community and I warmly welcome you to Alpha Chi Omega’s website! Becoming a sister of Alpha Chi Omega is one of the best decisions I made at Columbia, and I hope that, through formal recruitment, you will find a sisterhood that makes you feel just at welcomed and at home as I do. Alpha Chi Omega’s motto is “Real. Strong. Women.” and my sisters truly embody that sentiment. They are genuine, compassionate, ambitious, and encourage me to be my best self every day. I am constantly impressed by the loyalty and devotion each member shows towards one another and the support network that has been built between us. My amazement with my sisters extends to the classroom as well–from statistics to History of Food in Europe to dance, every sister is devoted to her area of study. I also admire their commitments to extracurricular activities beyond Alpha Chi, be it a varsity sport or the Varsity Show, my sisters’ involvement throughout the Columbia/Barnard community inspires me. Saying it is an honor to call these women my sisters is an understatement. Joining Alpha Chi Omega means joining a national community of women who all exhibit strong character, leadership ability, academic interest, and personal development. Sisters extend to a multitude of campuses across the country, and their legacy goes back to our founding date in 1885. It is truly a valuable experience that we are fortunate enough to share with one another. On behalf of my sisters, I want to thank you for visiting our website and for taking the time to get to know our sisterhood. I encourage you to follow our social media platforms to keep up with what we are up to throughout the year. I have met my closest friends through joining Alpha Chi and I hope you can too. You will form bonds and friendships that will grow to last a lifetime when you become a member of Alpha Chi and you will see there is strength in our sisterhood. I hope to see you during formal recruitment!
