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 sisters of Chi Omega are a diverse group, we have majors from Business and Accounting, to Engineering and Animal Science, we have sisters who grew up in Raleigh and sisters who grew up in California. Each sister is unique, yet we all fit together together to form the sincere sisterhood of Chi Omega. As a chapter, we placed among the top grades in Greek Village and we were the champions of Greek Week 2010.
