GENERAL Q & A
» HOW OFTEN IS CHI SIGMA ALPHA NATIONAL SORORITY'S RECRUITMENT HELD?
There are 2 new member recruitments held every academic year. Fall rush (October) and winter rush (January) are when interested girls have chances to join the sorority.
» WHAT IS A BID AND WHAT HAPPENS IF I RECEIVE ONE?
A bid is an invitation by a fraternity or sorority to offer a membership in that certain organization. If given a bid, the choice is yours to accept it to partake in a journey to become a sister.
» WILL RUSH COST ANYTHING?
All rush events are free and non-obligatory. At each event, the active sisters will provide food and transportation, so there is no preparation needed.
» I NOTICED THIS IS AN ASIAN-INTEREST SORORITY. DO I HAVE TO BE OF AN ASIAN ETHNICITY IN ORDER TO BECOME A SISTER?
Absolutely not! While most members of Chi Sigma Alpha currently are of Asian ethnicity, the group is diverse and does not prejudice against any ethnicity, race, religion, or other denominations of people. As an Asian American interest sorority, we help the Seattle community as a whole with our philanthropy but place more emphasis on helping out the Asian American community.
» DOES IT COST MONEY TO JOIN?
Just like other organizations on campus, we do have member dues that fund the activities and events you participate in but nothing too out of the ordinary.
» DO YOU HAVE A HOUSE?
Although many sisters do live with each other, we do not have a house mandatory for all sisters to live in, thereby minimizing the cost of member dues. Plus, many sisters spend time with each other very often, some living in apartment clusters, so there really is no need for a house.
