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 Delta's story begins in 1932, when a group of girls planning to attend Millsaps College after graduating from Central High School, decided to begin a local chapter. In 1934, a charter was granted to the Tri Chi's, and they became the Chi Delta chapter of Chi Omega. Within the first year of our charter, the Chi Delta chapter had the largest sorority on campus. Since then, the Chi Delta's remain a strong and active chapter at Millsaps College with 50+ members.
