Alpha Chi Omega participates in the national Collegiate Panhellenic Council's (CPC) formal recruitment process. At Georgia Tech, Potential New Members (PNM's) will visit all eight sorority chapters in order to narrow their choices down through a mutual selection process. In the end, the young woman will find the sorority, sisterhood, and community that best fits her values!
We cannot wait for each PNM to take part in this process and find her homes and family here at Georgia Tech!

Letter from the VPR
Dear Potential New Members,
If you’re new to Georgia Tech, congratulations on your acceptance to the best school in the world! You are about to begin an incredible experience, one that I cannot imagine having done without the love and support of Alpha Chi Omega by my side. Georgia Tech will push you to grow and learn in ways you never knew you could before — and along the way, Alpha Chi will help you to grow into the kind of woman you didn’t even know you could be.
I know formal recruitment may sound intimidating— I still remember that shake-in-your-wedges nerves and excitement clearly— but I promise that once you step through Alpha Chi’s teal doors, you can relax and feel at home. Don’t worry, we don’t like small talk about the weather either. Be ready to exchange laugh-til-you-cry stories from the summer, your most outlandish movie/book/show opinions, and stories about what sparks your passion for progress and service. We love recruitment because we get to meet hundreds of stunning young women who not only have done wonderful things, but are simply wonderful people, and it is a reminder of the strength of the female community at Georgia Tech. We cannot wait to welcome you into our home, get to know you, and give you a glimpse into our unmatched sisterhood!
Alpha Chi Omega has a legacy that has been built by everyday humanitarians, Miss Georgia Techs, Ramblin Reck Drivers, a Secretary of State, Peace Corps members, Miss USAs, CEOs, D1 athletes, philanthropists, (future) astronauts, and thousands more Real. Strong. Women. who defy labels. On Bid Day, we will welcome a new class of young women who will join us and continue the Alpha Chi Omega legacy, and one of those young women might be you!
I invite you to explore our website to see and read about all of the women who I have the privilege of calling my sisters. If you have any questions about recruitment or our sisterhood, please don’t hesitate to reach out and ask me!
We are counting down the days until we get to meet you! Until then,
Xx Rachel Luckcuck
Vice President of Recruitment 2019
Recommendations are not required to participate in recruitment or to join our chapter, but they are greatly appreciated and allow us to know a little bit more about you!
Why Alpha Chi?
There are eight CPC sororities, and even more outside of CPC, at Georgia Tech alone. Collegiate women have so many choices as to the organizations and communities that they join and the experiences they pursue.
So, this begs the question: why Alpha Chi?
Why did our sisters choose our chapter over others? What have they gained from being sisters here, and how has it shaped not only their college experience, but who they have become as individuals?
"I owe so much of my college experience and personal growth over the last three years to Alpha Chi Omega. These girls have empowered me, making me a more confident version of myself – I’ve never been surrounded by so many people telling me “yes you can.” I’m encouraged daily to go out and conquer my classes, conquer campus, conquer the world! These are girls who will never settle to be just another pretty face, and they remind me every single day that I am capable of hard work and success. They’ve made me aware of my day-to-day impact on people. This is mostly due to their impact on me – feeling the life that is given when someone believes in you, even in the smallest of moments, opened my eyes to the importance of every little interaction. I want to build up, encourage, and empower others the way that my sisters have for me."
-Gracie Curran, MC '15
“Alpha Chi has given me women that I look up to every day and inspire me to be a better version of myself. During recruitment this year, I became very close with a girl in an older pledge class who has served as a role model. She worked at Coca Cola in the fall, and had such a great balance between social life, success at work, and physical well being. I'm excited to start a co-op at Coca Cola this summer, working with her, and following in her footsteps. I would not be the woman I am today without her or the rest of my sisters.”
-Lauren Bauer, MC ‘16
“Even on the first day of recruitment, I knew that Alpha Chi was different. The girls I talked to were so inspiring-they were not only involved in their sorority, but all over campus. I walked out of the house on day one thinking, “Wow, I want to be like those girls”. And since then, these powerful women have lived up to those expectations every day through the endless support, kindness, and laughs they give me. Alpha Chi has given me a home away from home and some of the best memories and friends I could’ve asked for.”
-Haley Callaway, MC ’16
“My favorite part of Alpha Chi Omega over the years has been how the drive and passion of the girls, old and young, serves as such an inspiration to me. These girls have given me friendship when I’ve needed it the most, encouraged me to meet my goals (like getting fit), and even helped me find a job. But they also remind me to take a break from Tech and have fun when I can. One time some of the girls and I ate 100 wings and watched Moana in the media room during finals week, for example. I honestly don’t know what version of myself I’d be without them. I do know that I’m glad I found a group of girls who are not only there to support me, but who are also unabashed to down 100 wings with me in one sitting!”
-Afreen Fahad, MC ‘16
“Like many other out of state students, I was looking for an organization to give me a home-away-from-home feel. By joining Alpha Chi, I was able to not only get that feeling, but also gain role models, support systems, and friends who would drop everything to grab some ice-cream with me… which is the most crucial aspect, in my opinion."
-Sara Keesee, MC ’15
