AXΩ attends FSU Clock and Seal

Clock & Seal is a core tradition and a highlight of the Homecoming weekend festivities. Since its inception in 1995, Clock & Seal has hosted chief names in various spheres of leadership, as well as icons of Seminole lore. Attended by a vibrant mix of current and past campus leaders, FSU faculty, staff and administration, Clock & Seal has become the must-have ticket for every Seminole fan. The ladies of Alpha Chi Omega were excited to see Clock & Seal return after it was canceled in 2020, due to the pandemic.

This past weekend Alpha Chi Omega welcomed 78 new members at the annual New Member Retreat in Panama City Beach, Florida.

The weekend began by checking into the Cottages Retreat and all of the new members met their facilitators for the weekend. New members were broken into small groups to meet those in their member class in a group led by an initiated sister. Time spent at the retreat consisted of icebreakers, games, bonding activities, a beach afternoon, and ended with a friendly dance competition. The new members were able to hear stories and get advice from older sisters about all aspects of life, and what Alpha Chi Omega really means to them.

This was a wonderful weekend of growth, bonding, and sisterhood and we are looking forward to seeing all of our new members thrive in the Beta Eta chapter.
