Five-Star Accredited Chapter
IMG_1297.jpg
This past year we were awarded with five-star accreditation during Bradley University's Grand Chapter Awards. We strive to do our best to live out our symphony everyday and to be awarded with this is truly an honor. 

The purpose of the Grand Chapter accreditation program is to outline the basic expectations of fraternities and sororities recognized by Bradley University. In addition, this program assists chapters in monitoring and improving their own activity and performance. The accreditation criteria serve as the foundation for all healthy fraternities and sororities which, if implemented, can enhance the undergraduate experience for the chapter's membership. The requirements are based upon the core values of our fraternity and sorority community.

Make-A-Wish Foundation
The Make-A-Wish Foundation is Chi Omega Fraternity's National Philanthropy. Since the start of our alliance, Chi Omegas have made a difference in many children's lives through volunteering time, talents, and dollars. The Make-A-Wish Foundation has honored Chi Omega for the incredible volunteer efforts of our members.

The ladies of Mu Delta are dedicated to raising funds for Make-A-Wish by hosting fun events for Bradley University and the surrounding community. Our annual Wish Week has some of our most successful events including Swishes for Wishes, a 3 on 3 basketball tournament, and Late Night Waffles for Wishes.

Our sisterhood devotes time to a variety of community service throughout the year. Not only do we support Chi Omega's National Philanthropy, Make-A-Wish. We also support Susan G. Komen as Mu Delta's Local Philanthropy. 

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.

Symbols
Chi Omega’s symbols are a visual representation of our purposes and ideals.
chi o letters.jpg
Our symbols are a visual representation of our purposes and ideals. The Chi Omega Greek Letters are the Chi (X) and the Omega (O). They were selected by the founders, who cut cardboard into the shapes of Greek letters, shuffled, arranged and rearranged them on the floor until they found the monogram CHI OMEGA. They liked the combination and decided it would be the name of the sorority.

Chi Omega's crest was adopted in 1902. Centered on the crest is the white carnation, with the Chi to the left and the Omega to the right of the flower. Above these symbols are both the skull and crossbones and the owl. Beneath the carnation are the five letters Rho, Beta, Upsilon, Eta and Sigma. A laurel wreath, used by ancient Greeks to honor scholars and heroes, surrounds all of the emblems known and loved by Chi Omegas.

Our badge is a monogram of the Greek letter "Chi" superimposed over the Greek letter "Omega." The fourteen stones, always pearls or diamonds, are set into the badge.

The white carnation is the flower of Chi Omega. It was chosen for its pure, delicate white color and its refreshing perfume. Our colors are cardinal (red) and straw (yellow).

The skull and crossbones along with the owl are Chi Omega's symbols. The owl, however, is the most recognizable symbol of Chi Omega.

Symphony
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.

To live consta ntly abo ve snobbery of word or deed; to place scholarship before social obligations and character before appearances; to be, in the best sense, democratic rather than 'exclusive', and lovable rather than 'popular'; to work earnestly, to speak kindly, to act sincerely, to choose thoughtfully that course which occasion and conscience demand; to be womanly always; to be discouraged never; in a word, to be loyal under any and all circumstances to my Fraternity and her highest teachings and to have her welfare ever at heart that she may be a symphony of high purpose and helpfulness in which there is no discordant note.
