Activities
Participation in Activities develops us into well-rounded people.  We engage with others to develop outside interests and expose us to new and differing points of view.   By contributing in the larger world, we demonstrate that Chi Omega makes a difference in the lives of women.

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 chapter of Chi Omega is proud to say that we've donated over  $90,000 dollars to the Make-A-Wish foundation in the last ten years! During our "Week of Wishes" fundraiser we host a fun run, basketball tournament, a fundraiser at Buffalo Wild Wings, and a yummy brunch with a silent auction and a style show. We love our Philanthropy!

This year, on April 19, we are hosting yet another send-off party for a little girl. We are so excited and planning is already underway!

                              
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 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!

Scholarship
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.

Service
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.
