The sisters of Alpha Chi Omega pride themselves on being actively involved on UGA’s campus. Many sisters hold leadership positions, including Executive Director positions, among UGA’s largest philanthropy organizations such as Relay for Life, HEROs, and UGA Miracle. Several members are also involved in academic, leadership and honor societies including SGA. Alpha Chi sisters support UGA athletics by volunteering in programs such as Deck Dawgs, UGA Gameday Hosts, Diamond Darlings, and Hoop Girls. In addition to being team ambassadors, Alpha Chi cheers on the Dawgs every Saturday during football season. GO DAWGS!
Alpha Chi’s national philanthropy is Domestic Violence Awareness. The women in Alpha Chi Omega continuously volunteer within Project Safe, a nonprofit organization working to end domestic violence through crisis intervention, supportive services, and prevention and education. Each year, Beta Sigma hosts ‘Let’s Taco Bout It,’ an event where members invite students to enjoy a nice meal and hear music at the Alpha Chi house with the goal of raising money for DVA. Alpha Chi Omega warmly welcomes you to the University of Georgia. We are looking forward to meeting you this recruitment season!
