    A Farewell to our Seniors

    At the Alpha Chi house, we like to consider ourselves one big family. We laugh together, we eat our meals together and we experience the crazy ride of college together. Most importantly, we love one another as if we really are sisters. You can walk into the house at any time and you will be hard-pressed not to find a smiling, familiar face ready to share all of your sorrows and joy. Unfortunately, May inevitably comes around each year, and we are forced to say goodbye to a part of our family, as they graduate and head off into the world, ready to accomplish amazing things. As we get back into the swing…

    Security Guard, Best Friend, or Pro Football Star? We’ll Take all Three Please!

    Here at Alpha Chi Omega, we love our staff. They feel like part of the family. One member who has especially left his impact on us is fondly known as Chuck. Chuck is our security guard who patrols the house at night. He can usually be found sitting at his favorite table in the front of the dining room, however, he is rarely found sitting alone. There are always girls sitting and chatting with him. Not only does he provide a sense of security, but also a sense of friendship, to in-house and out-of-house girls alike. Chuck is always there to listen whenever we need a friend to talk to, a good laugh,…

    Exec Spotlight: Carrie Westmoreland

    Vice President of Risk Management Hometown: Columbus, MS Major: Nursing What is the most rewarding part of your position? “I would say getting everything together for date parties and keeping everyone safe. It’s definitely very rewarding to see people after the date party say they had so much fun and thank you because they felt safe. Everyone gets to have fun but still stay safe!” Toughest part? “For me, I feel like it’s the big responsibility and the difficulty to get everyone on board with new rules. It’s really hard being responsible for 400+ girls, especially at date parties and events like that. Everyone has a different opinion and different way of looking…

    Heart for Honduras

    The Central American country of Honduras sees, on average, over 880,000 visitors per year. Out of this number, thousands are travelling on a mission trip, and out of those thousands, one is Allie Coogler. During spring break of 2018, Allie, an Alpha Chi Omega junior, chose to travel 1,246 miles away from Tuscaloosa to Valle de Los Angeles, Honduras. Allie travelled with the intention to make an impact on the lives of the Honduran people, and in the end left feeling changed by the very people she went there to serve. Allie’s heart for the people and country of Honduras was beyond evident when we sat down with her to ask her a…

    Alpha Chi on the Go: Spring Break

    Welcome to the week of fun in the sun (or snow)! Alpha Chi Omega trekked around the world, reaching places from San Francisco all the way to Rome. Some sisters spent their week in sunny Florida, Mexico, and the Caribbean, while others preferred the colder climate of Colorado, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina. We went hiking, skiing, cruising, shopping, and biking; some girls even served on mission trips in Honduras and Cuba. If you look closely, you might even spot an Alpha Chi girl on the front row of the Ellen Show in Los Angeles! From strolling down Rodeo Drive to munching on snow cones in Seaside, Florida, Alpha Chi had a fabulous spring…

    Spring Break Service

    Spring Break. It’s a prayer, a blessing, and above all, a rallying cry for college students across the country. The week of refuge comes halfway through the spring semester, at a time when students seem to need it most, with exams, essays, and group projects flying in at lightning speed. At Alpha Chi Omega, spring break travels took our members all the way from the sunny tropics of the Bahamas to the chilly slopes of Colorado. Dorsey Shamblin, a junior Alpha Chi, spent her spring break on a mission trip to Cuba, a rather unconventional destination, and a country that only recently opened back up to the United States for travel. Cuba, a…

And of course Mrs. Fulmer!”  Guiding…
