I am an Alpha Chi Omega
Alpha Chi Omega is something you take with you forever, meaning our alumnae living out their lives as real, strong women are an especially important part of our Fraternity. Whether you're just learning about opportunities as a new alumna or you graduated decades ago, the bonds of sisterhood are everlasting. With tailored programming and numerous opportunities to get involved, your alumna experience can be anything you want it to be – and will help you continue to seek the heights!
Alumnae can create an account on the Alpha Chi Omega national website. Here alumnae can update their contact information, find fellow sisters, submit recruitment recommendations and find opportunities available only to Alpha Chi Omega members. We also highly encourage all members to join the National members only Alpha Chi Connection page on Facebook and the FSU Alpha Chi Omega Connection members only page on Facebook.

Advisory Board Support Network
Beta Eta is blessed to be supported by an advisory board full of women volunteering from various chapters, and walks of life. The alumnae advisors donate their time, talent and treasure unselfishly. The chapters advisors wear many hats - role model, mentor, supervisor, teacher, leader and follower. These women work closely with the chapter to assist the executive board and members in having a positive Alpha Chi Omega experience. The advisory board strives to be proactive in collaborating with members to provide accurate, relevant resources. They endeavor to lead and develop chapter members, to provide consultation and continuity. Simply put, they are role models and exemplify what it means to have lifetime involvement in Alpha Chi Omega and for that and for that we are forever grateful.
