How to Join

If you are interested in joining Alpha Chi Sigma, please attend an event listed below.
We recommend attending one info session and at least one rush event, but we encourage you to attend more!

Spring rush 2024


All science majors are welcome to rush AXΣ. Rush typically lasts 2 weeks and concludes with individual interviews. The rush process is so much fun! You will have the opportunity to meet other rushees and make connections with our brothers.

Pledging AXΣ
The pledge period typically lasts 8-10 weeks and provides you with an opportunity to learn the history of Alpha Chi Sigma, learn about Alchemy, and get to know the current brothers. During the pledge process, you will attend a 1-hour meeting once a week with your pledge class, and engage in bonding activities. Before initiation day, you will also be required to pass a short exam about everything you learned in pledge class meetings.

There is a one time fee associated with rushing Alpha Chi Sigma, but we are happy to talk to you if a payment plan is needed. After your pledging semester, brother dues are $15/semester.

The pledging process will likely be one of the highlights of your brotherhood. You will have the opportunity to develop a bond with your pledge class and a passion for our fraternity. Upon successful completion of the pledge period and meeting all the requirements of pledging, candidates are invited to participate in the initiation ceremony (I-Day) and gain membership into the brotherhood.
