This past week the ladies of Alpha Chi Omega partnered with members of the Asian American Student Union (AASU) for a mental health – event to destress a bit before finals. Those in attendance were able to use their creative side to paint rocks that they can then keep for themselves or hide around campus. While at the event members of the AASU taught sisters how to say Love in other languages. It was a ton of fun, and even some of our House Gentleman (servers) joined in after their shift. A big thank you to the leadership of AASU and our VP Diversity and Inclusion chair Anna for organizing!

2023 – Sisters inducted into Garnet & Gold Scholar Society

Florida State University welcomed 113 new inductees into its prestigious Garnet & Gold Scholar Society this spring during a special ceremony on Tuesday, April 25. Congratulations to sisters Victoria Cardoso, Morgan Marissa, Allison Keeling and Ally Columbus!!

Established in 2010, the Garnet & Gold Scholar Society facilitates student involvement and recognizes undergraduate students who excel within and beyond the classroom in at least three of five areas: international experience, internship, leadership, research and service. 

To become an inductee of the Garnet & Gold Scholar Society, students must meet the engagement criteria and submit a synthesis reflection project in their final semester before graduation. Participants are recognized during graduation and receive a designation on their official university transcript, both of which make the students more marketable to potential employers or graduate programs.

2023 – Alpha Chi Omega continues McDowell Month Celebrations – Members attend Florida State University School of Theater – Something Rotten

Members of Alpha Chi Omega attended the FSchool of Theatre at Florida State University: Something Rotten with Music by Karey Kirkpatrick & Wayne Kirkpatrick
Book by Karey Kirkpatrick & John O’Farrell. The event took place at the University Fallon Theatre. Members met at the chapter house and walked to the event together.

Something Rotten is a saga of artistic rivalry and camaraderie over-stuffed with in-jokes for Broadway fans. It premiered at the St. James Theatre in 2015 starring Christian Borle, Brian D’Arcy James, and John Cariani after a twenty-year development journey.

Welcome to the Renaissance, where a leather-clad wordsmith with swiveling hips is rocking London: Shakespeare! Meanwhile, down-on-their-luck playwrights, Nick and Nigel Bottom can’t summon a single sonnet. Then, when Nostradamus himself foretells “the future of theatre”, the Bottom brothers hatch a plan to rise to the top. Hilarity ensues in this campy lampoon of England’s first-ever musical.


2023 – Vision Board event in partnership with Florida State University CHAW (Collegiate Health and Wellness office)

Some of the world’s most influential thought leaders – agree. It is possible to turn your dreams into reality through manifesting and hard work! The sisters worked to be intentional with their goals through the CHAW guided workshop. Members looked at short and longterm goals, and visualized both the goal and the action steps that would make the abstract goal/idea come to fruition. The vision boards were poster-sized visuals, contain all kinds of images and text that represent something members are trying to accomplish.

There great news is there are really no rules when it comes to vision boards, since it’s about crafting something that will inspire you to realize your dreams and goals on a daily basis. Some vision boards hone in on a singular idea, while others look at the bigger picture of what you might want the future to look like. This past week VP DEI Anna partnered with the Florida State University CHAW (Collegiate Health and Wellness office) to host the event for members of the chapter. Members of the CHAW team came with magazines, poster boards, etc. And Alpha Chi brought markers, tape, and other supplies. The event was a fun fun arts and crafts project that allowed members to see what their goals would look like once they achieve them. Each member walked away from the event with a unique board and we have confidence each member will be successful in seeking the heights!
