Dear Potential New Member,
I am absolutely ecstatic that you are interested in Alpha Chi Omega! My choice to go Greek at Cal Poly has been a life changing decision that I could not be more thankful for. Alpha Chi Omega has given me my best friends, unlimited leadership opportunities, provided me with tools to enhance my education while readying me for my future career, promoted my personal growth and given me the most amazing memories that I will keep with me for a lifetime.
While the recruitment process may seem overwhelming, I promise being welcomed into a sisterhood with open arms is worth the two-week process. During this period in your life that is full of drastic changes, finding a home away from home that is filled with support, acceptance and love is essential. Being a part of Greek life will not only provide you with that home, but also maximize your opportunities during your time in college as well as the rest of your life!
I invite you to join Alpha Chi Omega in the Recruitment Process by signing up on the Panhellenic Website and completing the first step in your journey of going Greek!
I am honored to represent Alpha Chi Omega’s Epsilon Omega Chapter as the Vice President of Recruitment and look forward to welcoming new incredible women into our home.
Alpha Chi Omega looks forward to seeing you this September!
Vice President of Recruitment
New members bring new life and excitement each year to the Epsilon Omega chapter. During Formal Recruitment in the fall, potential new members are guided through the recruitment process with the hope that they will fall in love with their future sorority. For more information about the recruitment process please visit our Frequently Asked Questions Page or contact us with any questions you may have. We can't wait to meet you in the fall!
Letters of Recommendation are not required, but highly encouraged. If you would like to be recommended by a sister of Alpha Chi Omega, please encourage her to visit AlphaChiOmega.org to submit an electronic letter of recommendation.
We received the 2017 large chapter Seeking the Heights Award for our success during recruitment in Fall 2016! We are so honored to have been recognized by the national committee for our enthusiasm and engagement in Greek Life and in the community.
Your New Member Educator, Chloe Sanchez, will schedule a weekend getaway for a night of bonding with your new member class. In addition, you will learn about the history of Alpha Chi Omega, our founders, our traditions, and much more! This retreat is the perfect time to laugh, dance, eat, and stay up all night getting to know your amazing new sisters.
Presents is a tradition where all our sisters and family members are invited to attend a dinner party welcoming Alpha Chi's newest initiates and honoring the senior class. It is a great opportunity to introduce your family to all your new sisters and show them what it means to be a part of our sisterhood! After dinner and awards, we dance the night away with everyone to celebrate!
Accepting a bid from Alpha Chi Omega is one of the most exciting moments we've experienced. We know it can be an overwhelming transition to have 200 new sisters in a single night, so upon accepting a bid, our new members are immediately welcomed into our sisterhood and included in every event. Big-Little week, new member retreat, and presents are just some events that our new members get to look forward to as soon as they join our sisterhood!
The best time of year! Big-Little week is full of pampering where you will pick up a basket made specially for you every night stuffed full of treats, Alpha Chi apparel, and more! In your baskets your Big will leave clues to who she is and on the last day she will finally reveal herself and welcome you into her family!
