LETTERS OF RECOMMENDATION
In order to recommend a member, the process is now entirely online. As of 2021, Texas Alpha Chi Omega accepts recommendations from both Alumnae and Third-Parties. See below for more information & happy recruiting!
An Alpha Chi Omega Alumni can visit the Lyre Links website and fill out the form provided under the tab for Recommendations.
If you desire to send an additional hard copy recommendation letter, on top of the required online recommendation form, you can address it to:
2420 Nueces Street
Austin, Texas 78705
Beginning Fall 2021, Texas Alpha Chi Omega will officially accept third-party recommendation letters for the formal recruitment process. We recognize that the former requirement of recommendation letters solely from sorority alumnae consistently proved to be a racial barrier to entry for many minority students. We, as a chapter, are committed to eliminating that obstacle.
All letters coming from a third-party sender should be emailed to
