Letter to Parents

Your daughter made an excellent decision by choosing to attend the University of Arkansas - Little Rock. UALR offers many benefits to its students. Among those are small class sizes, a centrally located campus, and a growing campus community. It is the wish of our local chapter that every student at UALR participates in some way with the campus. There are many organizations that your daughter could join to help her establish her next four years and to get better acquainted with the university. Chi Omega is happy to boast the several different types of women that form our chapter. From Spanish to Education majors and everything in between, Chi Omega has a diverse group of students that we call sisters. Many of our sisters are associated with clubs and organizations that fit with their majors and minors. Also, many help with additional organizations, councils, and departments on campus.

Along with being well-versed on campus, our members are also among the most scholarly. Our chapter is happy to have the Highest GPA among Greek and student organizations for the past several years. We are constantly striving to better our GPAs by helping each other prepare for exams and form study groups. By knowing people on campus, your daughter will be more familiar with those in her selected major field.

Another area that we pride ourselves on is our involvement within the community. Whether we are helping raise money for March of Dimes, walking dogs for the Humane Society, volunteering at Boo at the Zoo, or granting a child's wish for our National Philanthropy, our chapter is very involved within the community. Our National Philanthropy is The Make-A-Wish Foundation and we take pride in the fact that in September 2008 we granted our first wish to send a 12-year old girl on a cruise to Hawaii. Each year we have a kickball tournament and a cookout to help us raise money for this worthy cause. It was, no doubt, a very rewarding experience to grant our first wish and to see the smile on the child's face.

With these things, your daughter will also find out what sisterhood is all about and find her home away from home. Many of us say that if we hadn't joined Chi Omega that our college days would consist of going to class then straight home. However, from joining we have our lunch dates and sisters to attend sporting events with. We hope that your daughter and you will take notice of our growing Greek system and join in our fun. We would love to answer any question that you may have. Please email your questions or concerns to chiomega.ualr@gmail.com.

We look forward to hearing from you soon!

Make-A-Wish Foundation

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 First Wish

On September 21, 2008, Chi Omega at UALR granted its first wish for The Make-A-Wish Foundation. Our wish kid's wish was to go on a Hawaiian cruise with her family. We held a send-off luau for her where we gave her games for her plane ride, cameras to capture to moments, and a lot of love to send her way. Our first wish kid will always hold a special place in our hearts and we hope that we have a place in hers.

Wings for Wishes


In spring of 2010, Chi Omega at UALR began Wings for Wishes. By charging $5 per ticket, participants were able to enjoy chicken wings, potato salad, french fries, desserts, and other fixings from various local restaurants.

Like our kickball tournament, Wings for Wishes is also dedicated to raising awareness and money for The Make-A-Wish Foundation.

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 Convention

Every two years, Chi Omega hosts a National Convention for its members. Each year two chapter officers (the President and another) represent their chapter along with two chapter advisors. Chi Omega Fraternity provides these officers and advisors with leadership skills workshops to use in their current positions in Chi Omega and also in their future professions.

 Chi Omegas from across the country have the opportunity to come together to share in the bonds of sisterhood. Every Chi Omega that attends a Convention considers it to be an unforgettable experience.



Chi Omega Firesides

On the off years of Convention, Chi Omega hosts Firesides at the Executive Headquarters in Memphis, Tennessee in February. These meetings provide each chapter's President and Personnel Chair with the knowledge they need to successfully carry out their duties for the chapter.
