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.


Over the past few years, our Chapter has been able to raise enough money through fundraising events, such as Rock N' Bowl, Chi O Karaoke, Dishes for Wishes, Dodge for a Dream, and Chi O Kan Jam to grant seven wishes! Four local area girls: Fiona, Ashley, Vanessa and Riley and three local boys named Aiden, Matthew and Christopher! We were able to send Aiden, Fiona, Ashley, Vanessa and Riley, as well as their families, to Disney World for a week long, all expenses paid vacation. We sent Christopher to the Superbowl and Matthew to New York City!  


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.

Ninety six years later, the Iota Lambda Chapter was established at Villanova University. Founded upon the same principles established by the four founding members, our chapter has grown to over one hundred active members today!

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.

Chi Omega’s symbols are a visual representation of our purposes and ideals.

Chi Omega Colors
Cardinal (red) and Straw (yellow).

Chi Omega Greek Letters

Chi Omega Greek Letters are the X and the Omega (horseshoe). Every Chi Omega may wear and use our letters. Not knowing the Greek language, the Chi Omega Founders cut cardboard into the shapes of Greek letters, shuffled, arranged and rearranged them on the floor until they found the monogram, CHI OMEGA. They liked the combination.

Chi Omega Flower

Chi Omega's flower is the white carnation. It was chosen for its pure, delicate white color and its rich, refreshing perfume.

Symbol of Chi Omega

The owl, an emblem on our Chi Omega badge, is the most recognizable symbol of Chi Omega, and represents wisdom.
