Alpha Chi Omega (ΑΧΩ) is a women's fraternity that was founded on October 15, 1885 at DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana. There are currently 135 chapters around the country and over 200,000 lifetime members. Alpha Chi Omega's colors of scarlet red and olive green were chosen to commemorate the fraternity's fall founding. The symbol is a lyre (a musical instrument) and the official flower is a red carnation. Alpha Chi Omega's mission is to embody a national women's organization that enriches the lives of its members through lifetime opportunities of friendship, leadership, learning, and service. It is through this mission that sisters of Alpha Chi share such strong bonds and memories that will forever shape the outcome of their lives.
Alpha Chi Omega Theta chapter house is located at 1212 Hill St., a convenient 5-minute walk to Central Campus! Here is a picture of our home in the winter, revealing its natural beautiful even in the cold of Michigan winter.
The rooms inside consist of doubles, triples, quads and a single for the Chapter President! We have a great kitchen with a lovely chef, a dining room to fit the whole chapter, a stunning, newly redecorated living room and two study rooms! Our personal favorite, though, is the basement, complete with a workout room, snack station, and TV room.
