Today we salute you miss Alpha Chi Omega sister. Not only do you have looks, brains, and glamour, you have the class to back it up. Sure, frat boys may talk to other ladies now and again, but don't worry - their only dream is to date an Alpha Chi. With those pearls and that Alpha Chi Omega sparkle in your eye, you are every guy's dream and every girl's envy. You can party like a professional, yet still keep that frat-tastic class. If you're dating an Alpha Chi, raise your hand. If you're not, then raise your standards. Then crack open an ice cold strawberry lemonade you sexy Alpha Chi, and remember: There's only one way to go... and thats A-Chi-O.

Hello Alpha Chi!
Just a quick question for all you wonderful ladies...
I'm New Member Educator (Pledge Mom) for next semester (!!!) and we're trying to increase the amount of sober sisterhood activities that we do with the pledges. I was wondering what y'all do and if you have any advice for me!
Thanks so much, I really appreciate it

9:15 am - Gamma Nu (SDSU) needs your help this week!

From Gamma Nu's Financial Advisor:

"The AXO house at San Diego State University has been under the threat of eminent domain for a number of years. We have almost completed a $700,000 renovation after the fire that devasted the house during recruitment in September and the City Council will be voting to renew eminent domain for another 12 years on May 23.



The Gamma Nu Chapter at SDSU is printing postcards asking their their house be excluded from the project & will we going door to door to ask their neighbors to send one to the City Council. We must help them preserve their beautiful, newly remodeled home.

Thank you! We don't want to live under the threat of losing our house for another 12 years!

Loyally, Linda"

3:36 pm - More on Sigma chapter and the tornado

There have been a ton of articles about the Alpha Chi Omega house at the University of Iowa since the tornado pretty much destroyed the building Thursday night, but one really touched me today, mostly because it was written by a sister and is a testament to the strength of our sisterhood. Quickly before the article, just want to mention a few things - one, no one was hurt on the UI campus including the members of Sigma chapter who are all safe; two - the sisters have relocated to the vacant FIJI house on campus; three - the current house will have to be demolished and rebuilt or another house purchased; four if you'd like to help the sisters, they have a wish list at Target http://www.target.com/gp/registry/2LWNRPPP04AV (or choose wishlist and then alpha chi omega sigma and Iowa as the state); and finally keep the sisters in your thoughts and prayers!

Sorority stories
Meghan V. Malloy - The Daily Iowan
Issue date: 4/14/06 Section: Metro

Words can't describe the pain I felt when I walked up to the house last night. The roof was gone - glass was everywhere. Two cars were sitting in our front yard. The entire east side of the house is gone.

I thought it was bad enough to come outside Thursday night and find a tree on top of my car; bad enough my apartment's bedroom is a mess of broken glass, mud, and debris. But then I got the phone call from my best friend.

"Alpha Chi Omega is gone, Meghan. What are we going to do?"

2:58 pm - more good news from Carnegie Mellon!

Congratulations to Anne DiGiovanni of Kappa Nu chapter! Anne is the first woman to be honored in the Carnegie Mellon Women's Leadership Series sponsored by Rho Lambda, an honor society.

see full article with photo here: http://thetartan.org/2006/2/27/news/digiovanni

Rho Lambda, a leadership and honor society for sorority women, will feature individuals in a new Women’s Leadership Series based on their contributions to campus life and their achievements as leaders and role models in the Carnegie Mellon and greater Pittsburgh communities. Anne DiGiovanni is the organization’s first honoree for the series.

During her eighth semester at Carnegie Mellon, Anne DiGiovanni is battling with an unfamiliar feeling; as a second semester senior, she suddenly has free time on her hands. “Being a second semester senior is awesome,” she said. “I have nothing to do.”

The concept of nothing to do is relative, of course. While DiGiovanni has finished her law school applications and has concluded her term as president of Alpha Chi Omega’s (previously Zeta Psi Sigma), she continues to hold the position of Greek Sing chair, take a full load of classes, serve in the Greek Task Force, work as a peer tutor with Academic Development, and intern with the Women and Girls Foundation of Southwest Pennsylvania.

Though enjoying this break from stress, she also admits that handing over many of her previous responsibilities has not been easy.

“This semester has been hard for me personally because I’m not in the driver’s seat anymore,” DiGiovanni said. In Alpha Chi Omega this transition has been particularly challenging. “Since I’m not president, I’m not in the loop anymore.”

Last semester Zeta Psi Sigma entered the process of transforming itself from a local sorority to a national organization, and in the past month decided on Alpha Chi Omega. As the president of her sorority and Panhellenic president the previous year, DiGiovanni was one of the ringleaders in the decision to become national. She was thus responsible for convincing her sisterhood that this new development would be a positive change rather than an unwanted renunciation of Zeta Psi Sigma’s own goals and values.

“A few of us decided we were going to lead this movement, and we didn’t know how everyone was going to take it,” she recalled. “But once we got it out there and knew that everyone was supportive, it became really exciting.”

DiGiovanni attributes most of her confidence as a leader on campus to her experience in Greek life. “I don’t think that’s what Greeks always get credit for, but it’s definitely what we are about,” she said.

As part of this semester’s Greek Task Force, DiGiovanni is working with leaders from other sororities and fraternities on campus to address current problems in the community and set goals for the future.

“We want to promote a social but a more responsible atmosphere,” DiGiovanni said. “In the end, we will need a culture change, that what we present to the public isn’t a party night on the quad or the attitude that all we are about is Booth, Buggy, and Greek Sing.”

As part of the risk management discussion in the Task Force, DiGiovanni hopes to bring up the at-times disconcerting relationship between men and women in the Greek community. “There are some blatant signs, including some fraternity rush posters, that show that women and men aren’t cooperating and respecting each other mutually.”

Overall, however, DiGiovanni feels that the Carnegie Mellon community is one in which female leadership can thrive.

“Women on this campus are strong leaders, and they hold their own,” she said.
She did not begin college as an active feminist, but has over the years become deeply immersed in women’s issues.

“I’ve done a 180 from religious and not liberal in any active way, to being completely liberal and a strong Democrat and a feminist. Part of it was personality change from not knowing who I was and being shy to being a woman and figuring out my identity.”
But it was an internship at the Women and Girls’ Foundation that has turned DiGiovanni into a vocal advocate of women’s issues.

This past fall she organized a press conference in relation to a protest called “Girlcott.” A group of local teens organized the protest against Abercrombie & Fitch and their line of T-shirts the girls perceived to be misogynistic. The boycott gained national attention, including coverage on CNN, and resulted in a removal of several of these shirts from the company’s line.

DiGiovanni encourages future women at Carnegie Mellon to get involved on campus early on in their academic careers. “Don’t sit around and waste your college years. Stand up for yourself and who you are, whatever that might be,” she said.
For next year, DiGiovanni’s plans include law school. Though she is not yet sure about the kind of law she wants to pursue, she sees women’s issues and political and social justice to be a good fit.

By exploring outward instead of turning inward, DiGiovanni is now finishing college with no regrets.

Editor’s Note: Anne DiGiovanni is a member of The Tartan copy staff.

8:59 pm - New AXO Student Government President!

Congratulations to Alpha Chi Omega Jamie Peper of Beta Sigma chapter who was just elected Student Government Association President at University of Georgia!!


Golden Ticket wins
Opposing party plans to contest SGA elections
Published , February 16, 2006, 06:00:01 AM EDT

The road to the Student Government Association office is paved gold.

Jamie Peper and Matt Suber of the Golden Ticket swept the presidential election with 56 percent of the vote.

“I think the election went very well,” Peper said. “It was ethical and professional. I’ve met fantastic people regardless of what happens.”

Suber said he was looking forward to a relaxing weekend after enduring the stressful weeks of campaigning.

“I’m going to the mountains of North Carolina for a ski retreat,” Suber said. “It’s not Disney World, but it’s exciting to step away from the whole process.”
Nearly all of the Golden Ticket was elected to SGA with 23 senators filling 32 of the seats.

6:30 pm - Social Events?

Hey guys, my name is Becky and I am a member of the Theta Tau chapter here at Rutgers University. We currently have a new member class of 19 girls, which we are really excited about! I was just wondering if anyone had an ideas for official (aka legal) mixers. We are implementing a new policy this semester in which we only participate in mixers concerning third party vendors. In other words, events could be at our house or at the fraternity, but there would not be able to be any alcohol unless there was a catering service, or we would have to go somewhere where IDs would be checked. I would really really appreciate any imput anyone has, all we really have going right now is a possible ice cream social. Thanks guys, and congratulations to all of the your new member classes!!!
