The handbook is a 30 pages long, so in order to avoid torturing you (you're welcome), we've picked out a few of the highlights (and to be clear, these are the highlights of the highlights chosen by Jezebel).
General Dress Code:
Clothing must be clean, correctly sized, and modest (too-high heels prohibited), so that girls look "classy, fashionable, and approachable." And lest the sisters think they can dress that way without oversight, the handbook says:
Please refrain from removing tags and do not buy anything that is non-returnable. Remember every outfit must go through two dress checks, and we will be photographing your outfits and checking them the day of recruitment!
These chicks are NOT into the low-maintenance look, let's just say.
Acceptable nail styles include neutrals, pale pinks, and French manicures, and hair must be cleaned, curled, or straightened, because "no natural looks" allowed...Hair must be worn down for philanthropy and development days, but may be worn in a classy up-do for preference."
The sisters of Alpha Chi Omega also seem to have a slight obsession with Vaseline, as they offer about 10 application tips: Use it as lip gloss; to exfoliate lips; to remove eye makeup; to condition lashes; to smooth brows; to soften skin; to prolong perfume's fragrance. Sisters should note, "LITERALLY EVERYTHING VASELINE IS THE ULTIMATE PRODUCT TAKE ADVANTAGE OF ITS EXISTENCE."
Pearls, gold, simple bracelets and rings ONLY, guys. Says the handbook writer, "If I feel that a piece of jewelry is too loud or does not go along with the day's outfit, I may ask you to remove it."
The handbook says:
You can only miss rounds of recruitment or polish weekend for: class, internships FOR CREDIT (paid internships do not count), verifiable illness of you or an immediate family member, wedding of a family member (or if you are part of the wedding party), and family emergency.
There's even more where that came from — this is a small fraction of the highlights that Jezebel picked out. To read the rest of the rules these sorority sisters have to follow during Polish week (can you imagine what the rest of the year is like?), head over to Jezebel.
