Our sisters work so hard, and they get rewarded! The best combination in life is qork with a side of fun! This is Sammi (freshman, also Alpha Chi legacy from UMD), Alexis (senior, writer for Osceola News-Gazette), Meredith (sophomore, VP FO), and also attending Kennedy (senior, president of Sport Management Student Association). They are working for the NCAA Men’s Final Four Tournament and enjoyed the opportunity to help at the Music Fest.
Thanks Kait for facilitating some helpful and engaging Chi Connection events this semester. Our last March session we talked about stress and enjoyed a special speaker Kait engaged from Garnet & Gold Society. Kana overcame PTSD and anxiety resulting from a sexual assault when she was a freshman. She urged sisters not to stay in “the dark place*. She found success from a mentor who recommended therapy where she learned about other survivors and the healing ensuing from journaling. She reminded us we must ask for help to find that light.
Kait led us through some exercises on “What is Mental Health and Stress?”
With mid-terms behind us and finals ahead – our VP Membership Programming, Leah and Sisterhood Chair, Maya planned a getaway for the day to Six Flags over Georgia. Nearly 200 sisters meet at 518 at 4:30 AM, grabbed a breakfast-to-go bag prepared by the Membership Programming Committee – complete with a drink, fruit, bagel, etc. and got on a bus headed to Georgia. Once there we enjoyed the day at the theme park, included in the ticket was a snack, bottle of water and lunch. After a day of fun, we grabbed dinner to go and headed to the buses to head back to Tallahassee! Great memories were made!
We had so much fun initiating Caroline, Jensen, Kacie, and Kailyn! They are all super friendly and have been quick to join all our activities and embrace all Alpha Chi has to offer. It is always special to share our ritual through Initiation, and especially nice when it is a small MC. CONGRATULATIONS to them and thank you Emma and the Ritual and Fraternity Relations committee and Marni and the New Member Education committee.
“In honor of our patron goddess Hera, Alpha Chi Omegas dedicate themselves on this day to aid the happiness and well-being of others…”
Thank you VP Ritual and Fraternity Appreciation Emma for hand-dipping cookies and partnering with VP New Member Education Marni to plan “Pastries & PJs” to decorate the cookies and share the #HeraDay love with FSU.
MacDowell Month: “Named for the MacDowell artists’ artist residency program in New Hampshire (Alpha Chi Omega’s first philanthropic project), this month also honors our Founders’ heritage as musicians…”
We asked our talented sisters to share some of their #finearts passion: Art majors, dancers, designers: How did you celebrate MacDowell Month?
Another fun time KROM event hosted by Pure Barre! Thanks VP Membership Programming, Leah, and KROM Chair, Natalie!
Thank you VP Diversity Equity & Inclusion Natasha and VP Membership Programming Leah and MyJourney facilitators (PeytonB, MaddieW, AnnaL, HaileyH, GraceW, SophieS & JaidenG) for your caring and investment in this program.
Pizza, Games, Movies, Fireside, Sleepover w/in-house sisters, and waking up to “Breakfast with our Chis” all make for the best way to welcome our new members! We love you Caroline, Jensen,Kacie, and KC (Kailyn) 🥰🎉
