ChiOmega

Chi Omega is proud to be the largest women’s fraternal organization in the nation! The reach of Chi Omega goes far and strong, with a network of sisters to support each other in achieving success and happiness through out life’s journey.

HISTORY AND VALUES

Since 1895, when four young women formed an organization to foster friendship and respect for women, we have cherished secrets and symbolism that guide our values and actions. Chi Omegas value high standards, friendship, personal integrity, and scholarship. We aim to serve others, lead with integrity, develop careers, and achieve intellectual excellence.

Chi Omega women come together to have fun, to lead, to achieve, and to flourish!
