"Sisterhood is many things. It’s a warm smile on a cold and rainy day, a friendly hug, a cheerful hello… It’s all that a good and lasting friendship is, only better. It’s treasured. It’s sacred. It’s knowing that there will always be someone there for you. It’s dreams shared, and goals achieved. It’s counting on others and being counted on. It is real."
Sisterhood is a value that all Alpha Xi Deltas treasure deeply. Some of the ways we continue to build our relationships with our fellow sisters are by attending sisterhoods, chapter retreats, and formals.
Sisterhoods are a twice a month get-together for the whole chapter and there are always fun activities planned! Some examples of past sisterhoods include making t-shirts, Zumba class, canvas painting, and Disney karaoke. They are a great way to take a break from studying and get to know sisters even better!

We have chapter retreats every fall, spring, and summer. This is a time to learn more about each sister through fun activities and team-building exercises. This past summer, our chapter had a blast at a sister's house in Lake Geneva, WI for our Summer Retreat.

Each spring, our chapter also has a formal where we dress up, have a nice dinner, do some awards, and dance a ton! This past Spring, we went to Celebrations and Shenanigans here in La Crosse! Food, Games, and a lot of dancing!
