The Membership Selection Process...

When a young woman accepts a bid for membership in Alpha Chi Omega, she is welcomed and accepted as she is, and she will never be expected to fit a specific mold. Potential new members are selected for membership in Alpha Chi after meeting our five national standards of membership. The sisters of Alpha Chi, Sigma Chapter included, all exemplify to the best of our ability the personal qualities of character, leadership, academic interest, personal development and financial responsibility.

After receiving a bid from Alpha Chi, new members participate in an education program meant to help them make a smooth transition to college life and a lifetime membership in Alpha Chi Omega. This includes education on the history of Alpha Chi Omega nationally and at the University of Iowa, as well as sisterhood events and socials.

The Vice President Education and the Assistant Vice President Education oversee all new member education. These women are dedicated to showing our new members just how much Alpha Chi means to each of its sisters.
