Alumnae Panhellenic of Tallahassee 2016 - Scholarship Event! #TBT

It's time again for the Annual Alumnae Panhellenic of Tallahassee Scholarship Luncheon!
Once again, our alumnae sisters are involved in the event with Karen Detrick Ellis as the chair.

In preparation of excitement and thanks to Karen (last year's chair), and Malena Allison (APT president last year) we are doing a "Flashback Friday" to last May when the event was held.

Last year and this year showed us a change of venue:  Fun times at the University Center Club at the FSU Stadium. Make sure to search our blog to see photos from the many years we have supported this event.

Can't wait for this year:  http://www.tallahasseeaph.org/events/?page=CiviCRM&q=civicrm/event/info&reset=1&id=23

#GivingTuesday - AXO Foundation #AltruisticAXO


What is Giving Tuesday?
Remember when we highlighted the Alpha Chi Omega Foundation last year?

Perhaps you are asking again:  What does #AXOFoundation do? Why do they need all 10,000 living members to contribute? Please see below:  This is the amazing work Foundation and our contributors do!




Today's gifts go toward our #AXOScholar sisters! Did you receive and AXO scholarship? Do you know a sister who did? It's your turn to #payitforward and help future sisters!

Hall of Commitment - #TBT to 2014


In preparation for our December 2016 Beta Eta senior graduates, we take you back to 2014 to enjoy the fun of opening the new hall to alumnae membership.

These fabulous alumnae helped usher 43 seniors  into alumnae life and through the Hall of Commitment.


This was the big group, and we always have a second round for those with conflicting schedules!

We hated for anyone to miss their last ritual event for a bit, so we held a "remix" as well a few weeks later.

Our seniors receive a carnation like in Initiation, notecards (encouragement to stay in touch and write thank you notes! #etiquette); a star bowl to remind them of the three stars on the Coat of Arms and ritual; and an electronic notebook we prepared to help them transition into "the real world", and to show them Alpha Chi Omega's relevance for their lifetime. #4lifenot4years.

Alpha Chi Omega Convention 2016 - #AXOSunshine

It might be chilly and fall-like, but we are remembering back to "fun in the sun" with our sisters in Orlando on this #FlashbackFriday.

We didn’t win any awards in 2016, but we still had fun! (Awards from Convention 2012, #AXOattheArch, and Convention 2010). The Beta Eta chapter won the Community Relations Award, and we were thrilled for them! Xi Omega Xi, the alumnae chapter we share with Beta Eta also won TWO awards (many thanks to their president and Beta Eta chapter advisor, Britain!):  Sisterhood Award and Long Distance Collegiate Support Award!

Plan to join us in Austin, TX for Convention 2018. Jenn said, "Will the hashtag be #KeepAXOWeird?" (love it!)

A photo montage from our treasurer JSBH to share “What’s Convention Like? …” Answer:  AMAZING!


We were so fortunate to enjoy the company of five current collegians at Convention!
Anna, Mckayla, Whitney, Gianna, Mindy

Salad Days! #WhyAlphaChiWednesday

Celebrating the arrival of summer at our annual Salad Days event in May turned into a joyful ritual moment when we recognized our 25-year, 50-year, and 60-year members! Thanks to our president Amy for always being prepared to honor our sisters. Salad Days is usually our largest event of the year, and we are thankful for the attendance of the Real.Strong.Women who live their AXO values, Wisdom.Devotion.Achievement.
