How does Formal Recruitment work?

 
Formal Recruitment is spread over three rounds and bid day:

During the open house, you will meet all four of our panhellenic sororities at CSUSM. Every potential new member (PNM) receives a schedule for when they will go to each room, and they must attend all four on this day.

For philanthropy night, each PNM will receive a schedule to attend the rooms of which she receives an invitation – and again, she must attend all of them.
 
The third night is Preference Night, you can get preference invitations to up to two houses. That evening, you will rank each sorority based on your preferences.
 
The fourth event, Bid Day, is when you will receive a bid from a sorority you visited on preference day and celebrate with your new sisters and fellow new members.

Does Alpha Chi Omega haze their new members?

 
No, we do not haze anybody. We want to love and support each and every new member in her journey to becoming an official Alpha Chi Omega sister.

I know someone at CSUSM who'd be a great match for Alpha Chi Omega. How do I recommend her to the Iota Tau chapter?

 
Alumni of any chapter of Alpha Chi Omega are welcome and encouraged to write recommendations for women going through Formal Recruitment this spring at CSUSM. You will need to log into Alpha Chi Omega Headquarters' website to view and complete the form. Instructions on how to complete the form can be found here and the form itself can be found here.
