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.

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 Omega has a long history with the University of Evansville, dating back even before UE! The Chi Epsilon Chapter of Chi Omega began on March 4, 1854 at Moores Hill College. It was at that time a local group called the Sigournean Literary Society. In 1871, the society became the Gamma chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta sorority. However, the college passed an anti-fraternity and sorority act banning all groups on the Moores Hill campus so the Gamma chapter dropped out. The members continued as the Sigournean Literary Society and through the years picked up the nickname of "Sigs." Moores Hill College closed and re-opened in 1919 as Evansville College. The Sigs followed and in 1929 became known as Gamma Epsilon Sigma sorority. Finally, on September 8, 1951 the "Sigs" became Chi Epsilon chapter of the Chi Omega fraternity. In January of 1967, Evansville College became the University of Evansville.
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.

Our chapter has hosted etiquette dinners and resume and interview workshops over the past year to enhance our personal development and professional knowledge. We are currently looking forward to attending a "Dress as Your Profession" dinner as we look to our futures.
Chi Omega is FUN! Every year, over 5,000 young women across America join the largest women’s fraternity in the world for sisterhood and lifelong friendships.

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.
                                                                                                                                                                                     Our chapter has held the highest GPA on campus for the past 32 consecutive semesters. We are proud to represent both our university and our chapter well by excellent students and well-rounded women.
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.

Chi Epsilon sponsors a Golf Classic every year as a fundraiser to support our local philanthropy, Albion Bacon Fellows Domestic Violence Shelter. In 2011, our Mini Golf Classic raised over $2,300 for the shelter.

For Chi Omega's national philanthropy, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, our chapter holds a potluck dinner called Make-A-Dish for Make-A-Wish. This year Chi Epsilon raised over $4000 with our delicious dishes.

In addition to our philanthropic events, Chi Epsilon serves the community by making cards for local nursing homes and children's hospitals for Christmas and Valentine's day. Members also participate in the Adopt-a-Grandparent program, as well as Boys and Girls Club of Evansville and the Big Brother/Big Sister program.

Chi Omega is the largest women's fraternal organization in the country with over 300,000 initiates and 174 collegiate chapters.

The Chi Epsilon chapter at U of E is home to over 90 of those women, and to us, Chi Omega is far more than just an organization.

Chi Omega gives us the chance to grow personally, intellectually and socially. It gives us the opportunity to become true leaders, philanthropists, best friends and above all, sisters. It is a home away from home, a family.

Chi Omega has made a difference in us, and together, we make a difference with Chi Omega.
