Alpha Chi Omega

Alpha Chi Omega is a national women’s organization that enriches the lives of both its collegiate and alumnae members through lifetime opportunities for friendship, leadership, learning, and service. 


The purpose of Alpha Chi Omega, as stated in the Constitution, is “to encourage the true spirit of sisterhood, to develop through personal effort a high moral and mental standard, and to advance the appreciation and practice of fine arts among its members.” There are 131 chapters, from coast to coast, with nearly 12,000 collegiate members giving back to their community, developing life-long learning habits, and making friends that will last a lifetime.

The members of Alpha Chi Omega are scholars, leaders, and work to serve others. They are involved in athletics, organize and lead numerous clubs, and are members of academic honor societies. Together, the members of Alpha Chi Omega are bonded by sisterhood. Sisterhood activities include, a fall retreat, both a winter and spring formal, numerous socials in cooperation with Greek life and various other organizations on campus, movie nights, dinners, and many other sisterhood activities. There are currently 59 members of the Beta Pi chapter of Alpha Chi Omega at Washington College.
