Educational Posters

The wellbeing of our members is a priority of Alpha Chi Omega. To this regard, we have teamed with Zeta Tau Alpha, Pi Kappa Phi and Sigma Nu to create a series of educational posters addressing ways members can reduce risks to themselves or others. Each one addresses a topic common on college and university campuses, like alcohol consumption and hazing prevention.

Distributed to chapters nationwide, the posters are intended to launch conversations among members about topics that may affect them, their friends and their campus community.
