During the 2001 school year, a transfer student named Stephanie Hoffman found herself unsatisfied with the community service organizations on campus. She transferred from University of California, Riverside where she was part of a local community service sorority. She liked the sorority because she was able to participate in community service events without a long term commitment. She also liked that the sorority didn’t have tons of rules or required a huge fee every quarter. She researched some of the clubs and sororities on campus and even attended a few rush events, but didn’t find one like her old sorority. She decided to start a chapter of the UCR sorority at UC Davis, but there were too many requirements. Finally after some more thought she started her own sorority during the summer of 2002 with Jasmine Wiest, Molly Hucklebridge, Katrina Jimenez and Katie Holmquist. Lambda Omicron Xi emphasizes community service as well as sisterhood and friendship. Well known for their distinct Ladybug A-Frames, the sorority stands out as a strictly community service oriented organization.
Lambda Omicron Xi is a sorority of diverse and intelligent young women, who all possess a passion to make the world a better place. Sisters of Lambda Omicron Xi complete community service along side their sisters, making the community a better place, while building the strong bonds of sisterhood. LOXi participates in a wide variety of community service activities, some of these include: SPCA Pet Adoptions, Habitat for Humanity, Putah Creek Habitat Restoration, Arboretum Plant Sales, as well as helping out at local schools. LOXi also participates yearly in Relay for Life when it is held at the UC Davis Campus.
Aside from helping the community, LOXi also strives to build strong bonds amongst the sisters through socials amongst sisters and socials with other organizations on campus. Some of these include Winter Retreat, Spring Formal, Spring Fling (with all the community service orgs on campus), movie nights, study dates, and potlucks. Sisters also build bonds with each other through working on community service projects together.
Lambda Omicron Xi will be Recruiting in Fall 2013 and Spring 2014. If you are interested in finding out more about the sorority and becoming a sister, please visit our table in the Quad the first week of classes or email Loxiservice@gmail.com
