My name is Allison Rohdy and I have the privilege of being the Recruitment Chair this year! It is my pleasure to prepare the chapter for Fall Formal Recruitment by planning spring and summer workshops, appointing chapter members to our Recruitment team, serving as a liaison between Panhellenic and our chapter, and most importantly, welcoming YOU into our doors!
With that being said, I know Recruitment may seem overwhelming as I remember my own pursuit of identity before coming to college. Whether you are overjoyed to enter into a new season of life or overcome with nervousness, Chi Omega simply seeks to get know you for you. My biggest advice is to be yourself; YOU are special and unique in your own way, and we are overjoyed with the privilege to meet you. Beginning with Recruitment, college is a time of transition and change, but we hope that you can feel at home in Chi Omega.
I am overwhelmed with gratitude as I survey the wonderful women in this chapter who exemplify gentleness without weakness, strength without severity, and humility without the slightest lack of confidence. Chi Omega will abundantly provide you with relationships that will refine you and teach you to live graciously and authentically. I am unendingly grateful that I get to experience daily this diverse community of women with so many different hometowns and majors. These girls are the ones I look up to and the ones who challenge me to be the best version of myself. College is a big adjustment, but our hopes are that Chi Omega will not only enhance your years at Auburn, but be the best part about your time as a student.
Every one of us is eager to meet you ever so soon!

There is a new online RIF System that provides a RIF with the same content as the past paper form and delivers it to the chapter’s recruitment team as well as the RIF advisor within minutes of submitting all the correct information.
We are requiring that all RIFs are submitted online because it expedites the process and ensures that each RIF has all information needed for approval. If you have any questions to the electronic process,

Tell us a little about what you do as New Member Educator.
Hey! My name is Hannah Ayers and I have the privilege of serving as the Alpha Beta Chapter’s New Member Educator this year! As New Member Educator my job all started back in the fall preparing for the new member class of 2019. This involves planning fun events such as swaps, desserts on the hall, Big/Little reveal and so much more all leading up to Initiation in January when they will become full members! When the girls get their bids, my job is to walk alongside them through their new member experience and make sure their transition into college and into the chapter is as smooth as possible. I also educate the girls on Chi Omega Fraternity in weekly meetings lead by myself and my Sisterhood Support Team. The thing I am most excited about through my position is being able to build relationships. As their transition into college may be overwhelming and have challenges I want to be someone they know they can come to for anything. I'm excited to see how all of the things I spent planning already can be something fun for the girls and help them make friendships that last and enjoy Chi Omega as much as I have!
What advice would you give to PNM's coming through recruitment?
I would advise girls coming through Recruitment to just be yourself and enjoy the process! This week can be overwhelming, but having a positive attitude will make the week so much fun and enjoyable! Cherish that the girls in the parties just want to get to know you and see your personality! All the girls you will be talking to in parties have been in your shoes before, so we know it can be scary! Just remind yourself that we know what you are going through! Don't be afraid to share how you are feeling, and what you are excited about or any fun stories!
What are you most looking forward to about being New Member Educator?
I’m most looking forward to getting to know the new members! There are going to be so many different types of hearts that walk through those doors and everything will be so new. I cannot wait to share life's adventures with my girls for not only their freshman year, but also for many years to come!
The Sisterhood Support Team is a vital part in assisting the New Member Educator in welcoming and encouraging new members the moment they step into Chi Omega. These ladies serve as the executive board as they each form different relationships based on her position. These roles can range from scholarship needs to chaplain. Each Sisterhood Support Team Member is assigned a small group of new members to check up on regularly to ensure that they feel comfortable entering in and continuing through their first semester as a Chi Omega.
The Recruitment Team is the group of women who handles everything from the decorations to the clothing to the food and everything in between. Without these ladies, recruitment would not be the rewarding and productive experience that it is each year. The unsung heroes of the week, the Recruitment Team works tirelessly to ensure everything goes off without a hitch while simultaneously keeping the morale high among the chapter during the week.
