"Our chapter's commitment to DVA is one of the main reasons that I joined Alpha Chi Omega. I love how our members are dedicated to not only raising money, but serving The Women's Center with countless hours of service every semester. One in three women is far too many to experience domestic violence, but more than this, every person deserves healthy love."

"Domestic violence is such a prominent issue in our society, especially within our demographic of being young women in society. Alpha Chi's philanthropy of domestic violence awareness is helping to actively fight against this issue and is helping those affected to move forward with love. DVA is so special in that it empowers individuals to redefine their future and find freedom from their past. It is truly an honor to be able to contribute to such a selfless cause as a woman within Alpha Chi Omega."

"The reason that I joined Alpha Chi Omega had everything to do with our philanthropy. When I walked in the house and saw a true and personal connection to Domestic Violence Awareness, I knew I was meant to be a member of Alpha Chi Omega. Nothing is more rewarding than serving this philanthropy and helping others to be REAL STRONG WOMEN!"
