Amanda DeYoung was initiated into Alpha Chi Omega in 2003. During her time at Beta Eta, she served as the T-Shirt Chair and was slated into the Warden position. She was also active in Homecoming events and participated in the 32 hours of Dance Marathon as a dancer her Senior year. Outside of Alpha Chi, Amanda was involved in the Fashion Merchandising Program at FSU and studied abroad during her Junior Year to Milan, Paris and London. She majored in Marketing and graduated in 2006.
Amanda now lives in the Atlanta, Georgia area and is working in Commercial Real Estate as a Commercial Property Manager, which keeps her extremely busy. She manages commercial properties on behalf of her clients with her portfolio including office buildings, large retail centers and industrial warehouses in and around the Atlanta area. In the free time that she can find, she likes to run half marathons, travel to new places, be outdoors and on the water and keep up with her puggle, Snoop!
She is involved in the local Atlanta Seminole Club and she is a Seminole Booster. She takes opportunities to get down to Tallahassee for a few games a year and never misses Homecoming. She even gets to a few away games each season. She remains great friends with many of her Alpha Chi sisters – including both her Big (Shanna Houraney, 01) and her Little (Katherine Elza, 04) – and they are fortunate to get away a couple times a year to take trips and see one another.
Amanda says, “When I joined Alpha Chi, I was joining a sorority…but what I got out of Alpha Chi became so much more than a sorority. The bonds and the friendships that came out of my years there gave me a solid foundation to become the person I am today.”
As an active member of Xi Omega Xi, Amanda was an integral part of the special event team for Xi Omega Xi’s 1st Annual Lucky Stars Reunion weekend in November 2010.
