Lyres and Pearls Make the Best Kinds of Girls

Spring Recruitment is here! The spring semester can sometimes be a weird one. For some, they might be picking up the slack from the fall or even transferring colleges for a new start. However, it can also be the best time to get involved on campus! During this year’s spring Open Recruitment, we’ve been lucky enough to…

PURPLE OUT WEEK

ALPHA CHI OMEGA PRESENTS THEIR FIRST ANNUAL “PURPLE OUT WEEK!”   In 1992, the Alpha Chi Omega National Convention adopted the awareness of domestic violence as their national philanthropy. “One in four women are victims of Domestic Violence.” Safe Horizon said. The local chapter here at Lamar University stands by each other to help educate…

Don’t be a Grinch; Recruitment 101

I know what you’re thinking… “This looks dumb! … What if I’m the ONLY one wearing a dress?… Do I look fat?…That’s it…I’m not going!” We ALL do it. We criticize everything we try on. I’m here to help you make your decision on what to wear a little bit easier. . Keep It Classy. You…

LITB, Ashlyn

As I sit back thinking on my collegiate life in Alpha Chi Omega, I keep trying to picture what my world would look like without it. Impossible. When going through recruitment, you will get the typical “these are my future bridesmaids” speech, along with the occasional “don’t know what I would do without my sisterhood”…

College 101

Dear Potential New Members, Welcome to the next four years of your life, or if you’re anything like me, you might want to stick around for a lot longer than that. These next couple of years are going to be the best times of your life, as well as some of the toughest. But what…

Memories Become Treasure

Purple. The color of a shade on the color wheel, the color of a wild flower in the sun, and the color for the awareness of Domestic Violence. But the most important thing: Purple is the color of the bruises we can’t see underneath our clothes. “I never realized how I was affected by domestic…

It’s cliche, Right?

In America, you either belong into two groups: people who don’t care about Greek Life – or the other – people who are Greek-affiliated. Many people who don’t care know as little as possible when it comes to Greek Life. For certain, they know about two things: Big and Little. They know the key components…

Sister Spotlight: Haley Jones

Our AXO sister spotlight this week is Haley Jones, a member of the Fall ’14 Pledge Class.   While being in a sorority, we always get asked the same question… “WHY did you join THAT sorority?” “Alpha Chi Omega was different!” Haley claimed. “When I walked into the AXO recruitment party, all of the girls…

Have fun now; Sleep later

Admit it, before coming to college, we all assumed we would breeze through. We thought A’s would come without a challenge, sleep would be something we always had, and we would still have time for a social life. No one told you the truth about it all. The cold, hard truth that college is hard. All…

Be you.

Many times our sisters have heard someone else or each other say something along the lines of “I’m not the sorority girl type” or “I would have never pictured myself as a sorority girl.” This is something that comes up a lot during recruitment time and especially during times where our sisters are trying their hardest…
