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. Alpha Chi Omega was founded on October 15, 1885, at DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana.

At MIT, seven women started a organization for women called the “Thalians,” and the group continued to grow. Soon after in 1985, they sought the support of a national sorority and chose Alpha Chi Omega because of the level of individuality this organization offered them as a chapter. Our founders understood that as MIT was a unique campus, a thriving Greek organization here would require unique guidance.

Today, Alpha Chi Omega sisters are involved in all facets of campus: athletics, dance, student government, community service, and dorm life to name a few. We sponsor a Domestic Violence Awareness Week every fall and host our annual Lip Sync competition each spring to support the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center, our local philanthropy.

Sisters of Alpha Chi Omega are not just there for you for four years, but for a lifetime. Sisters are there for you in the best and worst times, both to make exciting memories to cherish and to make hard times more bearable. Sisters are not just for four years; they’re for a lifetime.
