Welcome to Gamma Tau
at Ohio Northern University

Be Inspired. Be More. Be Alpha Xi Delta.

What is Alpha Xi Delta? The answer to this question will be different for every sister you ask. For some it is our philanthropy, Autism Speaks; for some it is the family that is helping her realize her potential; for some it is walking into the house and seeing her best friends, the ones she holds dear to her heart. There is a reason we are all here and, even if our answers are different, we are all connected together by a sisterhood that exceeds the bounds of our Chapter house and stretches all across the country. You could share this bond with old classmates, current professors, future employers and coworkers, and maybe even your biological family members. 

If you had told me when I was an incoming freshman that I would become president of Alpha Xi Delta three years down the line, I would have called you crazy. I did not give Greek Life a chance my freshman year. I made a lot of excuses as to why I couldn’t see myself as a member of a sorority at Ohio Northern. Not all of my friendships from freshman year lasted through May, so beginning my sophomore year left me feeling like I needed something new in my life. A lot of girls I liked encouraged me to be opened minded and to give Greek Life a chance. Any uncertainty I had about joining a sorority went out the door when three sisters of Alpha Xi handed me my bid.

The women of Alpha Xi Delta have been such an amaXIng support system to me. They have been there through the highs and lows of college life. I cannot imagine what college would be like without sisters building me up by encouraging me to be my best self and continually helping me to realize my potential as their chapter president. Joining Alpha Xi Delta is the best decision I have ever made. I believe in strong women lifting each other up, and that is what Alpha Xi is at ONU. I encourage every woman at ONU to consider Greek Life as an opportunity to better herself through service, knowledge, and sisterhood.

XoXi,
