ALPHA RHO CHI is a co-ed, social and professional fraternity for students of architecture and the allied arts. With chapters all over the country, Alpha Rho Chi is the largest Social Professional Architecture fraternity in the United States. Located at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, we welcome students from the College of Architecture and Environmental Design (CAED) to become a part of our family, although all majors are welcome with an interest in architecture. Over the course of a year we are involved in various activities on and off campus including lectures, workshops, philanthropic events and much more. The largest of our projects is the restoration, cataloging and distribution of former Cal Poly professor, Vern Swansen's, art collection, which was left to our chapter upon his passing.


The many benefits of Alpha Rho Chi include leadership experience (perfect for resumes), advice within the programs of the CAED (thanks to experienced brothers and alumni), and friendships that will last far beyond graduation.
