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.
Our chapter, Alpha Lambda, was founded on March 28th, 1998. Since then we have grown into a sisterhood with many traditions and a strong presence on Valpo's campus. We wear our letters with great pride. We look forward to growing the Chi Omega tradition at Valpo for generations to come.
