We are so happy to announce that our sister Jasmine Taillon said yes to her longtime boyfriend, Michael Collins!! Jasmine joined Alpha Chi Omega in Fall 2005.
They met in December of 2012. Mutual friends had been trying to set them up for awhile but they were both a bit hesitant. Their friends were persistent though and would show them photos of each other. Jasmine went to watch football with some friends. She noticed him from the photos and he did the same! After some eyeing back and forth for about an hour, Michael finally went over to introduce himself. Jasmine likes to claim their relationship required a little "meddling and some fate" mixed together.
Jasmine and Michael plan to marry in January of 2016! Congratulations to you both!!

We are so excited to announce our sister Siham Triki and Tim Mercer are engaged!!
Tim and Siham met at a football party him and his roommates were throwing on Halloween and started officially dating after an AXO crush party in February 2009. After 6 long years of dating he proposed to her this 4th of July and managed to surprise her. They went to Lake Travis to spend the 4th at the Lakeway Resort. They stayed Thursday through Sunday and when they got back from dinner Friday night there was a flyer from the hotel under the door that advertised the Lakeway annual 4th of July treasure hunt that would take place in the morning at the hotel's spa. She was totally in for the treasure hunt thinking she would win a massage or something. Long story short, they went down to the spa desk in the morning and all the staff was in on the treasure hunt and they gave them the first clue. They went through the treasure hunt and finally reached a treasure chest down by the lake that had gift cards in it along with 4th of July knickknacks. She thought they wer done and was ready to go and get the day started when he told her to keep looking and that's when she saw the ring in the chest. Then she turned around and both families were there to see it.
We are so happy for you! Congratulations to you both!!

Congratulations to our sister Reema Mansukhani who is engaged to Joshuah Garza!! Reema joined Alpha Chi Omega in Fall 2006.
Josh's middle school friend, Tina Wynn introduced them in 2006 during their senior year at Lamar High School in River Oaks. Reema was out for a girl's night with Tina and some others friends and she got a call from Josh and their friend Jake. Josh and Jake came to hang out with the girls and later that night they all went to Chachos for some late night tacos. That is where she realized how cute Josh was. They started talking and getting to know each other and she could tell right away how different he was from every other guy. They continued to hang out every week for the next few weeks and the rest is history!
We love you, Reema! Congratulations to you both!!
