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.

The Pi Epsilon chapter participates in many campus activities.  From participation in supporting philanthropy to campus intramurals we love to come out as a sisterhood and participate in various activities!

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.

The Pi Epsilon chapter of Chi Omega was founded at Roanoke College in 1955.

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.
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.

We look forward to Informal Recruitment in September of 2013! Chi Omega will also be hosting a Meet the Sisters event Tuesday, April 2, at 8:15 PM in our quad. All unaffiliated women are encouraged to attend!
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.
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.
As sisters, we hold service as one of our highest purposes.  As a sisterhood we strive work together to benefit the campus and the immediate community as well as the world around us.

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 constantly above 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.
Ethel Switzer Howard, Xi 1904

Welcome to the web site of the Pi Epsilon Chapter of Chi Omega. All sisters in our chapter LOVE being in Chi Omega! One of the things we take pride in is that we are so involved around campus. Sisters in Chi Omega are active in many organizations on campus: Relay For Life, Maroon Corps, Student Conduct Council, Academic Integrity Council, field hockey, lacrosse, Roanoke College Community Council, Student Wellness Awareness Team, Culture Shock, Roanoke College Choir and different honors societies for academic departments, campus tour guides, student assistants in various offices...and the list goes on and on. We also participate in community service as a sisterhood, like roadside clean ups around the Roanoke College community or Habitat for Humanity builds. We are excited for 2015- 2016 academic year and to continue the high standards around campus that we have created for ourselves.
