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 Appalachian State University Chapter, Pi Kappa, was founded on December 6, 1974. Since our founding, our chapter has exemplified our Symphony, and has become a home away from home for hundreds of women who have attended our University. Our sisterhood is the focal point of our chapter and is one of the many aspects that bind us together, in an organization that will truly last us a lifetime!
