Our Story
It all began on April 5, 1895, at the University of Arkansas when four young women, with the help of a local dentist, established the secrets and symbolism that today bind over 260,000 women. This small band of women founded Chi Omega after realizing a need for an organization that would foster both friendship and respect for the potential and inherent value of women. Over the years, Chi Omega has provided its members with unique opportunities in leadership, scholarship, and lifelong friendship - striving to provide each Sister with a commitment to personal integrity, excellence in academic and intellectual pursuits, intergenerational participation, community service, leadership opportunities and social enrichment.


One hundred and eighteen years after its inception, the  Omicron chapter of Chi Omega is home to more than 170 women who bring diverse talents and passions to our sorority. With members involved in hundreds of campus and civic activities, sports and organizations, the Omicron chapter is a place for fun, for leadership, for service and for learning. Whether we are chatting in the Piano Room before formal dinner, lounging on the couches in the Pine Room between classes, or staying up with our sisters while working in the study carrels, 907 S. Wright Street is truly a home to every Chi Omega.
