Alpha Chi Omega's formals occur quarterly at a fun surprise location venue. We all get dressed up, invite dates, eat a delicious dinner, and hit the dance floor with our best friends!
Our Fall Formal is called "Presents" and is a super sentimental night because it is the night that your Big Sister presents her Little Sister to the chapter and all of our guests. Little Sisters wear white and receive a red carnation from their Big Sister on Presents night.
Our Winter Formal is called "Crush", mostly because it occurs in the winter right around Valentines Day, but also because it is a tradition our chapter has continued for years! Our sisters invite dates to Crush Formal by sending an orange crush soda can and note to their desired date's on-campus location, and other sisters make sure to deliver this to them. It's an event everyone looks forward to!
Our Spring Formal happens towards the end of the academic year. This formal is special because for our seniors, it is their last formal as a chapter member. We're always sad to see our senior sisters leave us, but are so proud of our strong women for completing their undergraduate education. To send them off before they graduate, Alpha Chi Omega hosts a Senior Superlative contest and crowns every senior with a wonderful superlative at the end of the night. These superlatives range from "First Lady" to "Miss Sassypants"!
Every quarter our chapter has date dashes, which is a planned event within the chapter where each active can bring a date to this event! Its name originates from the fact that active members are not notified of the event until a couple of days before, so members "dash" to find a date! Dates can be an active's romantic partner, a roommate, a best friend, a family member, or whomever they please. The location of date dashes are never disclosed before the event to keep is a fun surprise for everyone.
Alpha Chi Omega attends Fall Y'all every Fall quarter as a chapter for a fun night to welcome the new school year. We also have socials with other sororities and fraternities on campus from a wide range of activities from bowling to cycling. The chapter also hosts brunches with our sisters to promote love within the chapter.
