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.
Chapter Updates
This Spring 2012, the Phi Lambda Chapter initiated 30 great girls into the Alpha Kappa New Member Class.   These fabulous girls have been a wonderful addition to our Sisterhood and we're so happy to have them!

Four years ago we moved into our new house at 444 West James Street. We are extremely excited to be living in this great house! Not only has the school done renovations to the property, but it is also much bigger and 17 sisters are able to live in the house. Please stop by and knock on our door if you're in the area! 

We held a successful Alumni Reception in our house this past fall during Homecoming Weekend. Our Alumni Relations Cardinal Cabinet has put together a very informative Alumni Newsletter including sections from Abroad Sisters, our Advisor, Dean Kate Snider, and much, much more! If you would like to be added to our mailing list, please contact Leah Taben or Taylor Walston, our Alumni Relations Director (ltaben@fandm.edu OR twalston@fandm.edu). We look forward to hearing from you!

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 helps raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation through our annual fundraisers. This past spring, we brought DipSync, a lip-syncing and dancing competition, to the Franklin and Marshall campus. Partnering with Kappa Sigma, we raised over $2700 for Make-A-Wish, the most any sorority has raised from a community service event!  Various campus groups entertained a crowd of students and a panel of four judges, who deliberated the winner. We can't wait for the many DipSync events to come and hope you will come out to support us in the future!

Additionally, our chapter has been involved in Make-A-Wish send off parties for children whose wishes to go to Disney World had been granted. Each Disney-themed party we have hosted has been an incredible success for both the families and the sisterhood and we look forward to continuing this tradition.

Finally, each Halloween, the sisterhood, along with Kappa Sigma, hosts an annual haunted house for the community. Children are able to enter a spooky world filled with crazy cooks, brooding witches, and the occasional ghost. It's not only a fun-filled night for the children, but also for the sisterhood.


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 Phi Lambda Chapter was founded at Franklin & Marshall College in 1987. Since then it has been one of the strongest sororities on campus.
Recruitment
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.
