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 History of Kappa Zeta!
The history of Kappa Zeta Chapter of Chi Omega began in October 1961, with a rush planned by national officers and local alumnae. After several days of personal interviewing and rush parties, the first Chi Omega pledge class at Texas Tech emerged. This group of pledges was unique, in that they had come together as a colony, to be part of a national organization from its founding.

The Kappa Zeta chapter did not exist as such until the colony's installation. Molly Fulton, official transfer from Iota Alpha (SMU) functioned as the only actual "active chapter", and at the same time, served as pledge trainer for some sixty girls.

During the first months the pledge class was busy learning about Chi Omega and taking part in various campus activities, while getting to to know one another and becoming unified as a whole.

Initiation and installation of Kappa Zeta took place on February 17, 1962. Elizabeth Dyer, president, Winnie Bowker, treasurer, and Miss Marion Elmore and Virginia Pearce, chapter visiters, were the delegation from National Chi Omega. About thirty Chi Omegas from the Iota chapter of the University of Texas performed the initiation ceremony. Kappa Zeta Chapter, consisting of 53 members, was welcomed by the Panhellenic Association the following day at an official reception.

With full chapter status and recognition, the group elected officers and a tradition began.
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.

"They're the people you can share your secrets with, cry with, laugh with, and just be yourself with. They don't judge you or make you change. They accept you exactly as you are. They look at you and they see a great person, one they love spending time with. You all share something in common and are tied together by memories, tears, laughs & smiles. You're tied together by love for the other. Sisterhood is the greatest thing in the world. I find my time with my sisters the best times of my life. My sisters are my heart, my soul, my fun, my laughter, my tears, my love and my life" ~ Unknown
