Alpha Chi Omega

Alpha Chi Omega was founded by seven women at DePauw University in 1885. Their badge, the Grecian lyre, represents the musical talents of its founders and their dedication to the arts. “Together let us seek the heights” is the motto that Alpha Chi Omega chapters strive to emulate in order to succeed as sisters. The Beta Sigma Chapter at the University of Georgia has been honored as one of the top Alpha Chi Omega chapters in the nation for over a

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 Omega’s national philanthropy is Domestic Violence Awareness. The women of Alpha Chi continuously volunteer within their local philanthropy, Project Safe, which is a nonprofit organization working to end domestic violence through crisis intervention, supportive services, and prevention and education. Beta Sigma completes projects and hosts events throughout the year to support Project Safe and spread awareness. Love Should Be Sweet is an annual domestic violence awareness advocacy event that takes place on the chapter’s front lawn during Healthy Relationships Week. This event often involves a sweet treat and positive messages to remind everyone on campus that they are deserving of real, healthy love. Alpha Chi Omega warmly welcomes you to the University of Georgia and is looking forward to meeting you this recruitment season!
