After a great week of recruitment, the day our chapter had eagerly been waiting for finally came. Bid Day! On August 18th, Sorority Village filled with women excitedly awaiting their bid cards, and chapter members ready to finally embrace them.

Alpha Chi Omega is thrilled to welcome 66 beautiful and unique women to our sisterhood, and to celebrate them, we threw a wonderful garden party! After all, Alpha Chi “Knows How To Pick ‘Em”!

I asked many of my sisters this question. I exchanged many text messages and had many conversations about this question. The varying responses I received has enlightened me about how impactful Alpha Chi Omega to people in so many ways. To each one of our sisters, Alpha Chi means something different:
"It means that no matter what, I'll always have a sister to go through anything and everything with." Bailee Beshires
"Having over a hundred people that love and care about you and who would do anything for you." Hannah Anderson
"Always having someone to eat Chick-Fil-A with." Carolyn Hodge
"Having sisters I can go to for just about any problem and knowing they'll be there for me no matter what." Angela Waldorf
"Alpha Chi means never having to study or eat alone. It's the girls who will stay up all night with you to help you pass the test, and go hiking with you when you need that break." Hannah Byrd
"Alpha Chi means so much to me for so many different reasons. Throughout my freshman year I wasn't really involved and I didn't do much to expand my friend group. However, after living in the house for a whole year and convincing myself to run for an executive position for our chapter, I have come to love and cherish everything that Alpha Chi Omega has given me. Alpha Chi has brought me out of my shell, taught me how to be carefree, and how to be a leader." Morgan Bennett
"Alpha Chi Omega has brought me out of my comfort zone to see a portion of this world that I didn't even know existed. It's brought me closer to people I never would have met, as well as opened doors to new, amazing opportunities." Ashley Rohr
This only a handful of the millions of reasons why Alpha Chi Omega, Delta Pi Chapter is so great here at the University of Tennessee. We hope that through recruitment you find a place that means to you what Alpha Chi means to all of our sisters.
