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.
Over the years, Chi Omega at VSU has had many great accomplishments, some

Chi Omega is the 2nd largest
women's organization in the US next to The Girl Scouts of America.
Chi Omega is the largest
women's fraternal organization with 173 collegiate chapters, over 300,000
initiated member, and approximately 16,000 active collegiate members each year.
Chi Omega is the only sorority that does not
initiate until a member has made her grades. Scholarship should
always come first. For this reason, we are proud that Chi Omega's
national grade point average exceeds the national all women's GPA and national
all sorority GPA.
