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 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.

Local History
In 1964, Alpha Gamma Rho became the first men's fraternity on SDSU campus. Within two years, Farmhouse closely followed. While the college's agricultural emphasis brought a great amount of men to campus, the need for a women's fraternal society was realized. Dean of Women, Vivian Volstorff, realized Chi Omega's leadership and academic achievements, making it an aspiring women's fraternity to bring to the newly forming Greek Life. Chi Omega's chapter of Xi Theta was installed at South Dakota State University on April 15, 1967. Thirty one women were initiated that day. With flourishing numbers, Chi Omega grew as the first women's fraternity installed at SDSU. Her vision has spread to include over four hundred alumni of our chapter.

From the beginning friendships were forged and still forty one years later, our chapter continues to grow in sisterhood and love. We are currently a family of thirty-six active members and three pledges. We are real women of character, hail from all walks of life, many majors, and different personalities, yet come together as Chi Omega.
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.
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.
