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.

Tau Theta has worked hard to raise money for The Make-A-Wish Foundation in a variety of ways. Wish Week, our annual philanthropy week in the fall semester, is always a huge success! This fun week allows us to aid in granting wishes to children in the program and bring awareness to our community. Last November we also hosted our second annual 5K Wish Walk/Run for the Fulton community and closely surrounding communities. The event was a great success, and we look forward to hosting our third annual 5K Wish Walk/Run this fall! On another note, this has been a very special year for Tau Theta as we had the chance to grant a wish to a very special boy in our own campus-town community who goes by the name of "Super Sam." Sam is battling a rare form of cancer, and when the chapter found out he was eligible for a wish, Tau Theta was determined that he be granted it as soon as possible! After much planning and hosting events, the Tau Theta Chapter was able to take part in granting Sam's wish for a swimming pool!

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 Tau Theta Chapter of William Woods University was founded in 1965. Since then, women in our chapter have continued to flourish throughout the university and community. Our members are involved in almost every organization and university sport on campus. We currently reside in Atkinson Hall located on the south side of campus. Our big white house, overflowing with lovable young women, has become a place we call, "Home Away from Home." 
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.
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.
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."
