A Letter From The President


Sofia Chierchio

2023 Chapter President
Alpha Chi has been one of my favorite experiences at Cornell so far. During recruitment, I instantly felt at home, and that feeling has yet to go away. The friendships I’ve made are some I will have for the rest of my life, and I couldn’t be more grateful. AXO will forever be a gift to me, and I am so proud to be part of this amazing group of women.
