Alpha Chi Omega is committed to lifelong learning and to the primacy of academics in college life. We strive to educate members about risk management, personal development, leadership, wellness, domestic violence, and other issues relevant to today’s society. We believe that the choices we make – both as individuals and as chapters – should reflect our high ideals and our ethic of care for our sisters. The Iota Sigma chapter works to create and implement programs that enhance both the individual and the community.
