About Alpha Chi


our chapter history

Alpha Chi Omega is a national women's organization that enriches the lives of our members through lifetime opportunities of friendship, leadership, learning, and service. Since our founding on October 15th, 1885, at Depauw University in Greencastle, Indiana, we have been a society of women that encourages our members to "Seek the Heights," emphasizing the importance of being "Real. Strong. Women." Our symbol, the golden lyre, represents our aim to find joy in the small things and harmony in life. Since our founding, 135 Alpha Chi Omega chapters have been founded across the nation, with over 200,000 initiated members. The Epsilon Psi chapter at UC Irvine was founded on January 29, 1977.

our goal

As members of Alpha Chi Omega, we always strive to find and help shape Real, Strong, Women. Our sisters are always growing, learning, achieving, giving back, and forever seeking the heights. Being an Alpha Chi means becoming the best version of yourself and reaching your full potential. It means not only finding your study buddies, work out partners, and best friends, but also a place to call home.
