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.

Some examples of Kappa Mu's leadership is as follows:

-23 Sisters hold executive positions in a CCO club.

-Chi Omega sisters hold 8 positions in Student Government including 3 executive board positions as the student body president, Class of 2015 president, and Class of 2016 president.

-7 of our sisters are Division 1 athletes, ranging from Rowing to Softball to Swim to Cheer and Dance.

-26 Chi Omegas are in Habitat for Humanity and 11 have gone on alternative spring break trips for Habitat.

-3 of our sisters traveled overseas on an alternative spring break trip this year.

-7 of our sisters are on SHU Force, and 11 play a club sport in addition to that.

-The President of the Theater Arts Program, which holds 5 Chi Omegas, is a Chi Omega.

-More than half of our chapter participates in work-study, and 40 of our sisters are in a club for their major.

-8 Sisters are in National Honors Societies, and 5 are RA's.

-Chi Omega has roughly a dozen Student Ambassadors and 7 girls tutor in the JLC.

Friendship
Friendship is what binds us to each other and to our Fraternity.  The friendships we develop in Chi Omega give us a home across geography and generations and give us lasting support throughout our lives.

The women of the Kappa Mu chapter became founding sisters of the Chi Omega fraternity at Sacred Heart University on January 28th, 2012.  This day marked the beginning of a wonderful journey for the 174th nationwide collegiate chapter of Chi Omega.  Excited to enter the Greek community at Sacred Heart, ninety-one sisters continue the Chi Omega legacy every day and are proud to be a part of something bigger than themselves- something that has brought sincere friendship, love, and inspiration. Alike the nationwide chapters of Chi Omega, the Kappa Mu chapter holds Chi Omega's six purposes close to its heart, because each sister strives to portray these values in her every day life.  Soon after initiation day, these women realized that a Chi Omega sister is not something they just became, but it is something they have always been.

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.

The Chi Omega Fraternity at Sacred Heart University has planned several fundraisers over the past year since we first colonized in the fall of 2011.  During our first year we have made impressive strides towards raising money and supporting the Make-A-Wish foundation. We have also done a good job of advertising what the Foundation does for children on campus through word of mouth from our informed sisters and our explanations at events!

On 11-11-11, students donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation by buying Make-A-Wish bracelets that our sisters handcrafted. In December of 2011 and 2012, we set up tables outside of the dining halls and asked students to write letters to Santa. For each letter to Santa written, Macy's would donate $1 to the Make-A-Wish foundation. We collected roughly 500 letters each time! In the spring of 2011, we held another fundraiser with an "Easter Egg" theme. For a small donation, a student could receive an egg that could contain a raffle prize, candy, or a gift card. This past winter of 2012, we held our first Holiday Boutique Bazar where local businesses came to sell products in the UC auditorium. Large percentages of the profit from each company went to the Make-A-Wish foundation. We even had and Alex and Ani bracelet table! 

This spring 2013, we hosted our first philanthropy week, Wish Week!  We fundraised throughout the week, and sold leis and hibiscus hair clips to go along with our Hawaiian themed week. Also, there were cutout flowers and coconuts that students wrote their name on and placed them on the LuOwl poster outside of Student Union. We held a Surfboard Decorating Contest for all Greek Organizations and other clubs on campus to attend and enjoy competing for having the best-decorated surfboard. To end off our first Wish Week, we held a fundraiser named the Chi O LuOwl (Luau theme). Those who came enjoyed Seashell decorating, hula hoop and limbo contests, picture taking behind a life-size wooden cutout of a hula dancer and surfer, raffle prizes, Make-A-Wish sunglasses for sale, Walnut Beach Creamery ice cream, and a volleyball tournament! It was a fun filled week that ended up allowing us to fundraise $1,087.83 for Make A Wish! 

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.
