Chapter History

Founding

The Alpha Xi chapter was founded on Sunday evening, March 3, 1991 in Heth Lounge B.

Early Years

Members of the Alpha Xi chapter helped induct the founding members of the Alpha Rho Chapter chapter at Virginia Tech on November 3, 1991.

Mat Panyik of the Gamma Class served our first National position as what was known then as a Chapter Consultant and now as a Regional Consultant. The Chapter Service Key has been awarded to two of our members, Jennifer Cook in the spring of 1994 and Jane Allison Ludwing in the spring of 1996. Receiving the Chapter Service Key is a great honor it recognizes an individual Brother for providing outstanding service to the Fraternity.

In recent years Mr. Gregory Humble, President of Alpha Xi during the Fall of 2000 and the Spring of 2001 started a Radford University Foundation Scholarship. We are working hard to put the scholarship into use. With much assistance from Mr. Humble himself, and recent initiate classes, the Chi's, Omega's, and Alpha Gamma's, we are looking forward to seeing a dream become reality.

The Alpha Xi Chapter selects one initiate class each semester following a rigorous Rush process. Initiate classes typically range between 12 and 18 members, although this is not governed by any chapter policy and exceptions do occur.

The chapter follows a nine week initiation curriculum that has been developed and refined from year to year. At the end of the nine week process, initiates are inducted into the Chapter, pending passage of a Chapter Final Vote and successful completion of all national and chapter requirements.
