Yumna's 10 Reasons to be a Texas Alpha Xi

Going through recruitment can be stressful, whether you’re familiar with the process or not. Everyone is anxious to find out which sorority is the right fit. My best advice is to look for each chapter’s personality and take into consideration why the girls you talk to chose to join. To help jump-start your search for a sisterhood on the Forty Acres, here are the 10 reasons I think you should be an Alpha Xi at UT: Breakfast tacos are sacred in Austin.

Alpha Xis Overseas: Alaina Graham

Girl Day at UT with Kelly Mullins

This year was the 16th Annual Women in Engineering Program's "Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day and STEM Festival." The day consisted of 7,000 K-8th grade students participating in nearly 150 hands-on STEM activities and presentations led by student organizations and corporate sponsors.

I currently work for the Women in Engineering Program as an office assistant and help with all of the work that goes into making Girl Day happen, like making hundreds on hundreds of hands-on activity kits and input

Hey everyone! My name is Allyson Horstman and I am the Membership Vice President here at Alpha Xi! I am in charge of a lot of the action behind the scenes that couples with recruitment as we work to find the best new members for our chapter.
