We are the Alpha Rho chapter of the Alpha Chi Sigma Professional Chemistry Fraternity. Founded at the University of Maryland, College Park in 1927, AXS remains one of the oldest professional fraternities on campus.

AXS hosts several professional, social, and community outreach events through the year. We not only build resumes, we form bonds that stay for a lifetime. No other fraternity is quite like us!

If you are interested in joining our chapter of Alpha Chi Sigma, please feel free to email Jack Sigler at jsigler1@terpmail.umd.edu. Attendees can meet the brothers and learn about the pledge process, as well as all of the requirements and expectations of a pledge.

Free food at all events and winter beverages at Info Sessions!
