Q: Is there a large time commitment to being a member of Alpha Chi Omega?
Becoming a member of any organization is a time commitment, and Panhellenic sororities are no different. When a member accepts their bid, they are making a conscious choice to dedicate some of their time to this organization, but most importantly, they are declaring the Alpha Chi Omega is a priority in their life. This prioritization looks different for each member, however. Some sisters are very dedicated, choosing to be on exec or hold multiple non-exec positions while others choose to simply be involved through attending all philanthropy events. With that being said, each member has a weekly commitment to chapter meetings, mandatory chapter events such as philanthropy events and a minimum of 3 service hours per semester.
Q: Will I be hazed?
Absolutely not. The Alpha Chi Chapter & Headquarters, Butler University, and NPC take a strong stance against hazing. Our chapter has not and will never tolerate such behavior starting from the moment a member accepts her bid and onward.
Q: Will I get to live in the house?
Yes - all Alpha Chi members are guaranteed to be able to live at least two semesters in the house. All new members will have the chance to live in the house starting the semester after they join Alpha Chi.
Q: I'm a sophomore. Can I still join Alpha Chi?
Yes - any woman eligible to register for formal recruitment through Butler's Panhellenic Association will be considered during the recruitment process at Alpha Chi Omega.
Q: Does Alpha Chi Omega consider transgender women during the recruitment process?
Yes! Alpha Chi Omega was the first sorority to openly accept transgender women. Our policy is that all persons who live and identify as women are eligible for membership, regardless of the sex they were assigned at birth. As our understanding of gender identity evolves, so will our sisterhood.
