“My NAIP experience was seamless, welcoming, and loving, and I will treasure my membership in Alpha Chi Omega…I will be sure to proudly wear my badge as often as possible and share our mission and values with others for the rest of my life.” -Alumna Initiate

How to join as an alumna

Alpha Chi Omega shapes the future through the powerful, transformative and everlasting connections of real, strong women. The National Alumna Initiate Program (NAIP) extends our membership experience to real, strong women in our communities who identify with the mission and values of Alpha Chi and care about our philanthropic initiatives, who did not have the opportunity to join Alpha Chi Omega as a collegiate member.
