Initiation lasts one day and the Collegiate Branch experience only a few years, yet these impressions carry on for a lifetime into your membership in the Professional Branch.
Getting Involved in the Professional Branch
The Professional Branch of the Fraternity is a vast network of alumni of all the collegiate chapters of Alpha Chi Sigma. Involvement means maintaining the fraternal connections you made in college and forging new ones as you continue through your career. Just like your collegiate experience, you get out of the Professional Branch what you put in.
