Participation in Activities develops us into well-rounded people.  We engage with others to develop outside interests and expose us to new and differing points of view.   By contributing in the larger world, we demonstrate that Chi Omega makes a difference in the lives of women.


Chi Omegas are known to throw events that could rock P. Diddy's world. They come up with fun-themed soirees at New Orleans' hottest venues. You know it's the start of the school year when you see all of the Chi Omegas robed in white, attending their legendary White Party. Then they blend in a few mixers with the best fraternities on campus with themes like Hunt or Be Hunted, Nick @ Nite, and 80s Babies. In the spring, they welcome Tulane back in true western style with their Yippee Chi O party. Chi Omegas end the year with a bang by throwing an unforgettable and undeniably fabulous Formal Party.

Friendship is what binds us to each other and to our Fraternity.  The friendships we develop in Chi Omega give us a home across geography and generations and give us lasting support throughout our lives.


Chi Omegas at Tulane take sisterhood to heart! From tubing trips to tie-dying, movie nights to mall excursions, Chi Os always have fun spending time with their sisters. Whether it is holding each other's hands through a terrifying haunted house tour, or helping each other figure out which toppings to get at Pinkberry, Chi Omegas can always count on each other. You'll always see Rho Chi Os hanging out all over the Tulane campus, the New Orleans area, and even across the country and traveling the world! Chi Omega fosters an amazing spirit of sisterhood that creates relationships that will long exceed our days in New Orleans.

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.
Personal Development
Career and Personal Development prepares us for life’s work and makes us marketable regardless of the path we choose.  Sisters serve as mentors and coaches along the way.  Chi Omega promotes personal growth and teaches us to work earnestly at whatever we choose to do.

Career Development:   

The Career and Personal Development committee in the Rho Chapter of Chi Omega helps the members of our chapter become the best women they can be. Along with the values of Chi Omega, they provide opportunities for the members of the chapter to enrich their lives to become successful in their chosen field of study. They promote career building through alumnae relations, résumé workshops, study abroad events, internships, and job fairs. They advocate healthy lives through helpful nutrition facts and fun group exercise programs. Their main objective is to make sure their sisters have the resources necessary to achieve their aspirations.

Sincere Learning and Creditable Scholarship means that we care about our intellectual development.  We embrace the spirit and excitement of learning throughout our lives and encourage others to better themselves.


As Chi Omegas, we pride ourselves on being well-rounded young women.  While we love to have fun, we also take our academics seriously, and we make our best effort to balance our responsibilities.  The Scholarship committee helps our chapter to achieve its academic goals by holding Study Hours and providing academic guidance when necessary.  While the thought of "Study Hours" may not seem fun at first glance, Chi Omega makes them fun and productive.  Studying with sisters is better than studying alone, and baked goods and snacks make Study Hours even better! The most important part of Chi Omega Scholarship, though, is the individual dedication shown by all of our sisters.  Our record speaks for itself because we have the highest GPA on campus for five semesters running.

Community Service means that we want to make a difference on our campuses and in our communities.  We know that giving back to others unselfishly makes the world a better place and makes us better people.   Serving and giving helps to connect us.


Community Service:

Chi Omegas love helping out in the community. Whether they are volunteering at ARNO (Animal Rescue New Orleans) local no-kill animal shelter, or working with their philanthropy, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Chi Os are constantly trying to reach out and help the community. They love participating in events such as Race for the Cure, Zoo-to-Do, and Trick-or-Trunk. From painting adorable kids' faces to writing letters to soldiers overseas, Chi Omegas always find unique and fun ways to give back to their community!


Chi Omega Fraternity supports the Make-a-Wish Foundation as part of our philanthropy. Each year, our chapter does one major event to support this organization. Rho Chapter hosts a silent auction each year during Parent's/Homecoming weekend. There is a wide variety of items auctioned, ranging from local restaurant gift cards to items from boutiques throughout the nation. This event is a great way for everyone to introduce their families to their fellow sorority sisters, all while raising money for such a wonderful cause. Each year Rho Chapter raises enough money to grant one wish to a child from Make-a-Wish's Gulf Coast region!

The Chi Omega Symphony has reflected the purposes of Chi Omega members since its composition in 1904 by Ethel Switzer Howard on the eve of her initiation into the Xi Chapter of Chi Omega at Northwestern University.
