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.

The Pi Zeta Chapter of Chi Omega was established at Western Michigan University December 10, 1960.  Over the years Chi Omega has been one of the strongest sororities on campus.  The sisterhood at Western Michigan creates lifelong friendships and memories that you will remember for years to come.  The sisters of the Pi Zeta chapter strive to live by the six purposes of Chi Omega.  By becoming part of Chi Omega, we have met our best friends and have built relationships that will last throughout our lives.  Chi Omega is for a lifetime!


As a Chi Omega, you will leave college with fond memories, a foundation for leadership, and the best friends you've ever had. You will create pride in yourself and in your sisters that will last a lifetime.
