Sister Spotlight

Ashley Muliak, a transfer student from Birmingham-Southern College, began her journey at Florida State in Fall of 2016. Besides studying Finance and being a sister of Alpha Chi Omega, Ashley owns and operates her very own photography company—Gray Style Productions.

Ashley began seriously pursuing photography after a shoulder injury ended her college softball career at BSC. Ashley noted this injury as a "blessing in disguise" because she was finally able to focus her time and energy into developing her photography company.

Gray Style Productions specializes in senior photoshoots, portraits, and music group photography. Her favorite types of photography sessions? Test shoots for modeling agencies. Not only does she get to photograph her clients; Ashley gets to come up with the style, location, and overall concept of the shoot. She loves being able to get creative with her work and capture her clients' personalities in the process.

Alina Echemendia, and Alpha Chi Omega sister, even had the opportunity to work with Ashley for a portrait photoshoot (Credit: graystyleproductions.org).
We continue to be amazed by Ashley's passion for photography & her pure talent within the industry. As for her company's future, Ashley is looking at possibly expanding her business to include wedding photography. We are extremely excited to see where her hard work takes her!

Congratulations Seniors!

Our seniors are busy finishing up their last college finals this week. In just a few short days, they will be walking across the stage to receive their college diplomas. The Beta Eta chapter has 61 graduating seniors and we could not be any more proud of them! These women have left their mark on our campus, our chapter, and definitely our hearts. 

While it's never easy saying goodbye, we are extremely excited for our graduates to take on their futures outside of Florida State's campus. Always stay true to yourselves and keep seeking new heights! The house with the little red doors will always be your home. 

We love you endlessly, Class of 2017!

More Than Spring "Break"

While many sisters spent their spring break relaxing at home or traveling to beaches near and far, a few sisters spent their week-long break volunteering out of the country.


Sisters, Mackenzie Hall and Carly Roman (also big and little), traveled together to Ecuador to participate in MEDLIFE's medical mission trip. While in Ecuador, they helped rural communities receive critical access to health care. They also helped build a staircase that allowed the community in Riobamba, Ecuador to receive important resources, such as electricity. Despite long days of work, they were still able to explore Ecuador and see mountains, volcanoes, and waterfalls nearby. Carly stated that "the area was absolutely beautiful and so was the experience". Several other colleges across the United States, including USC and Ohio State, also participated in this particular mission trip.



Shannon Nichols, a Communications Science & Disorders major, flew to Guatemala to spend her spring break working with hearing-impaired locals in the area. Alongside fellow classmates and professors within her major, she helped perform 200 hearing tests, allocated 55 hearing aids, and even assisted in constructing a home for a single-mother in Panajachel, Guatemala. Shannon felt that this trip gave her a whole new perspective on the world and reaffirmed her passion for her major. She said that this trip "made me realize that my future profession will truly make a difference in people's quality of life".


These three women are just a few of the many sisters in our chapter that have an undying passion to help others. We are all extremely proud of your selflessness and the life-changing impacts you have made on people all across the world. We hope that one day, we will all be able to make as big of an impact on the world as you three have!

Healthy Relationships Week



Each year during the week of Valentine's Day, Alpha Chi Omega celebrates Healthy Relationships Week. This week is dedicated to raising awareness of domestic violence and educating others on how to engage in relationships that promote physical, mental, and emotional health. We are able to accomplish this through our "Love Is..." campaign and events such as Pizza Pie with Alpha Chi, in which proceeds benefit our local Tallahassee Refuge House.

Love Is...


The "Love Is..." campaign aims to change the conversation that surrounds domestic violence and abusive relationships. This is why Alpha Chi sisters spend time to educate others on what a healthy relationship should look like. By defining our own ideas of what love is, we are able to help others identify healthy aspects of love in their own relationships.

Join us next week at our table during Market Wednesday in the Oglesby Union from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. to share your own idea of what "Love Is"!

Pizza Pie with Alpha Chi

Our annual philanthropy event, Pizza Pie with Alpha Chi, will be held from 5-7 p.m. on Thursday, February 16th at the Alpha Chi Omega sorority house. Buy a pre-sale ticket from a sister for $5 or $7 at the door. Delicious pizza will be served from your favorite Tallahassee pizzerias!

All proceeds will benefit those affected by domestic violence and sexual assault right here in Tallahassee. This money will allow these victims to receive critical resources, such as medical examinations, proper counseling & therapy, emergency shelter, and much more.
