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 Omicron Theta Chapter of Chi Omega was established on the campus of Midwestern State University in October of 1966. In our storied 40+ year history, we have initiated more than 700 women into the Chi Omega sisterhood who strive on scholarship, sisterhood, and Mustang pride!
