Academic interest is one of the five standards of Alpha Chi Omega.
We support our sister academic success through:
VP Intellectual Development lead support systems
two quiet Study rooms available in the house
career building workshops including resume workshops, mock interviews and headshot photos
Majors dinner where sisters sit by major to learn more about classes, gaining work experience, and trends in the industry.
Sisters and alumni who serve as constant role models!
Here at Alpha Chi Omega we embrace this motto and seek the heights in our majors, careers, studying abroad and awards.
Georgia Tech offers countless global study and work opportunities, and dozens of our sisters take advantage of them each semester. We love to watch those scattered across the globe, from the cliffs of Ireland to the rolling green hills of New Zealand, as they learn, grow, and explore our world in endless ways. We love sharing their stories and photographs, look forward to hearing about their experiences. Even better is taking part in these experiences together.
There are few things as valuable and meaningful as expanding our horizons on a truly global level. Beyond books, labs, and the United States, travel teaches and exposes us to a plethora of perspectives we may never have otherwise imagined. Seeing the world in a new light, together, allows us to see the beauty in even the common things all around us. And this isn't something we would trade for the world.
Studied Abroad in Australia
For the Spring 2019 semester, I got to do an exchange program in Sydney, Australia, with two of my best friends from AXO, Abby and Rachel. We lived together and took classes at the University of New South Wales. We spent a week in New Zealand (which was so beautiful that it literally looked fake) hiking Roy’s Peak, watching the sunset from the top of the Remarkables, and zip lining over turquoise lakes. One of my favorite trips was when we visited the Whitsunday Islands, where we spent two days on a live-aboard boat with 25 other backpackers from 10 different countries: we got to snorkel in the Great Barrier Reef, see Whitehaven Beach, and see the Milky Way in full force. Some of my favorite memories, though, were some of the calmer days in Sydney spending time with my friends and learning to call a new city home.
Studied Abroad in France
I was fortunate this past semester to study abroad in the beautiful city of Metz, France. While there I got to learn a lot about the French culture and had the opportunity to travel to so many amazing counties outside of France such as the Netherlands, Belgium, Portugal, and even Bulgaria. One of the highlights of my semester was getting to parasail off the top of a mountain in Interlaken, Switzerland. Flying over the town and mountains below finally gave me a small glimpse into what it would be like to fly. Studying abroad was one of the best decisions I ever have made.
