Hi and welcome to Alpha Chi Omega at THE Ohio State University,
Throughout this past year, I have had the honor and privilege of serving the Alpha Omicron Chapter of Alpha Chi Omega as President. Although this last year has been interesting to navigate, my experiences in this chapter are irreplaceable.
Originally when coming to Ohio State, I felt as though I was just another individual lost in the crowd. Being a first generation student and only child, I faced a lot of uncertainty and adversity in trying to find my home. It was not until going through recruitment that my entire Ohio State experience was transformed. I went from being afraid to leave my dorm, to being involved in six student organizations in the matter of months. This is all because of the strong sisterhood and bonds created in Alpha Chi Omega.
Each of our approximate 154 members brings something extremely unique to this chapter. Whether it is their major, interests, passions, or personalities, there
has never been, and never will be a “Cookie-Cutter Alpha Chi Omega.” While each woman in this chapter provides something different, they are all the most driven, high-achieving, and dedicated people I have ever been around. At the end of the day, the bond we share in sisterhood and passion for philanthropy are what unites us all.
Every woman in this chapter immensely cares for the other, something I immediately experienced by living in the facility for two years. Whether someone had a difficult day or had something to celebrate, they would be greeted with the same open arms every time they crossed the threshold of the red door on 15th Ave. Late night drives, TONS of dancing, and powerpoint nights were weekly occurrences that needed no explanation. However, the most meaningful experiences were often when a sister was struggling and needed someone there.
When you are going through the recruitment process, keep an open-mind because the place you will eventually call home is exactly where you are meant to be. Get so excited for what is to come. I cannot wait to meet you in January!!
