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 Lambda Zeta Chapter of Chi Omega as installed at the University of Missouri- Kansas City on December 9, 1961. Lambda Zeta's twenty-two charter members were former members of the local sorority named Cho Chin which was founded in 1933, the same year the University was founded. Cho Chin's goal was to affiliate with a national sorority. After Chi Omega Nationals recognized and approved the Cho Chin Chapter, Miss Elizabeth Dyer conducted the installation. Among other prominent University representatives, Dean Bloch, Dean of Students, welcomed Chi Omega to the campus. This list of charter members can be found on the Charter displayed in the dining room.
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.

Recruitment is the best time of year. It is the time to get to know your sisters on a more personal level. Recruitment represents sisterhood, unity, and expanding our family! We even get closer with our fellow Greeks. Recruitment is the time to show our pride and love of Chi Omega to potential new owls!!

Chi Omega’s symbols are a visual representation of our purposes and ideals.

Chi Omega Greek Letters are the CHI (X) and the Omega (O). The Chi Omega Founders cut cardboard into the shapes of the Greek letters, shuffled, arranged and rearranged them on the floor until they found the monogram, CHI OMEGA. 


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 know and loved by Chi Omegas.


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


Chi Omega's flower is the white carnation. It was chosen for its pure, delicate white color and its rich, refreshing perfume. Chi Omega's 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.



Chi Omega's seal, designed by Ina May Boles, has the head of our patron goddess Demeter in the center, the name of the Fraternity encircling it, and the date of the founding below. The outer edges are made in five uneven scallops.

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.

Chi Omega Symphony

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 Chapter, Northwestern University, 1904
