Why Alpha Chi?

Hi everyone,


I’m Lauren, the Vice President of Recruitment for Alpha Chi Omega! On behalf of my chapter, I’m so excited that you are considering joining Greek life at USC! While recruitment might seem stressful, it is easily one of the most rewarding experiences you can have. Beyond finding a sisterhood and forever home, the recruitment process allows you to meet so many amazing women from every chapter and create bonds with women in the Panhellenic community that will last a lifetime. 


I thought joining a sorority would give me a support system and group of close friends, but I have found that Alpha Chi Omega has given me so much more: a family. On bid day I felt so welcomed by everyone in the house, and I have felt that way ever since! Greek life allows you to build a family of your own, and some of the best memories I have in Alpha Chi are Big/Little reveals, whether I was becoming a Little or a Big! From leadership opportunities to meeting lifelong friends and living with my Big, I cannot imagine how different and incomplete my college experience would have been without Alpha Chi Omega. My sisters encourage me to be my best self and work towards my goals every day, and I don’t know what I would do without them! 


As you move through the recruitment process, I hope you will continue to see the sisterhood, opportunities, and support system that Alpha Chi Omega has to offer. We can’t wait to meet you!

Hi everyone,


My name is Chelsey Nguyen and I am the current Vice President of Recruitment Information for Alpha Chi Omega. I know I speak for the whole chapter when I say we are incredibly excited that you are considering going Greek! Even though recruitment can be stressful, it is the most rewarding experience that will allow you to not just meet your friends, but your sisters. 

Entering USC as a transfer student and a Spring admit, I didn’t know anybody. I wanted to integrate myself into the USC community as fast as possible and decided to join Greek life. Many of my friends that joined their Panhellenic organizations at other schools loved their experience. I wanted to find a way to make friends very quickly, while also surrounding myself with like-minded, empowering women that could guide me through my transfer journey. This led me to join Alpha Chi Omega.


Alpha Chi Omega has provided me with everything I knew I needed and more. When I joined, everybody I met was incredibly kind and always went out of their way to make USC and Alpha Chi feel like home. There is never a dull moment and I continue to make memories with my favorite people that I will treasure for a lifetime. From living in the house, getting my Big and becoming a Big to my Littles, going to indie concerts, attending USC sports games, and studying together through the late nights -- I found everything that I wanted at Alpha Chi. 


Here, I feel heard and understood. I’m valued as an individual and encouraged to be my best self. The women here are not just friends I take pictures with or people I will forget once I have graduated. They are my support system. They motivate me. They keep me accountable. They are my best friends that I love with all of my heart and I could not imagine my college experience without themi. And I know that we will continue to be there for each other long after we graduate.


I hope that you can see the love and sisterhood that we have for one another here at Alpha Chi and will partake in the recruitment process. I hope that you find your home away from home, just as I have with Alpha Chi. We can’t wait to meet you this spring!

Along with the crazy fun times (aka every day), what makes me love my house so much is what each girl stands for: being unapologetically herself.
