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 Alpha Alpha Chapter of Chi Omega was founded at the University of North Texas in 1953. Since, Chi-O has encouraged individualism in each person and stressed the importance of achieving the highest goals possible. Each young woman is unique and has a little something different to offer, creating a wonderful balance between the individual and the chapter as a whole. Memories, confidence, and fun are all enjoyed by the members of Chi Omega!
