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.

Chi Mu History
The first pledge class of the Chi Omega chapter here at Bucknell was in Fall 2000. Before that we were a local sorority, Kappa Chi Delta, established on Febuary 1, 1998. The idea for Kappa Chi Delta began with four women, Debbie Jancek, Kate Murray, Valerie Stetts and Chrissy Hnetinka. These women had a vision for what Greek Life at Bucknell could be like, and hoped to provide another option for women on Bucknell's campus. The women of Kappa Chi wanted to promote enthusiasm, diversity, and character among all our Greek sisters. However the Kappa Chi sisters wanted to become a national organization, and so they searched for a national sorority that embodied the same ideals they were founded on, and Chi Omega was that sorority.
