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.

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 Sigma Alpha chapter has gotten very involved with the local Make-A-Wish chapter in the near by city of Cincinnati. In the fall semester of 2011, Sigma Alpha raised enough money to send a young girl to Disney World with her family. As a chapter, we were very proud of this accomplishment and hope to grant many more wishes in the future. In order to raise money for the foundation, the Sigma Alpha chapter is involved in three main events throughout the academic year. 

1.) State to State 5k Run/Walk = This is a 5k event through the city of Oxford. With every runner that signs up for the race using a registration form associated with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, a certain percentage is put forth to charity.

2.) Mom's Weekend Auction = Every spring, the Sigma Alpha chapter invites all mothers of the active members to spend a weekend in Oxford. On the Sunday of the weekend there is an annual brunch in which baskets are donated to be auctioned off to the highest bidder. Baskets can be anything from a cookbook collection to Chi Omega spirit wear and are created by moms and daughters as well as the philanthropy committee. All of the proceeds from this silent auction go directly to the Make-A-Wish Foundation in order to fund the next wish of a deserving child. 

3.) King of the Wing Competition = This is an annual wing eating contest between the fraternities and sororities on Miami's campus. Sigma Alpha pairs with one other sorority and two fraternities in order to help raise money for our philanthropies. Buffalo Wild Wings helps to sponsor this event where teams of four participants are created and enter for a fee that helps to support our philanthropies. 

Many of our sisters are also trained Wish Granters and have the opportunity to work directly with Wish families and children in granting wishes. Every year, about 20 new Sigma Alphas attend training in Cincinnati to become even more involved with the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The experience that come from working with these amazing children and families touches all of our hearts and impacts the lives of each chapter member.


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 Sigma Alpha chapter of Chi Omega was founded on January 4, 1913 and since then has touched the lives of countless Miami women.  Here at Miami we are well respected and strive to be involved on campus and in the classroom. Chi Omega is proud to consistently rank among the top sororities in grades and we are passionate about our philanthropy, the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Chi Omega hosts an annual fundraiser, King of the Wing, to raise money to grant wishes to children with life threatening illnesses. The incredible bond of Chi Omega extends from sisterhood activities to social events such as Chee-Omunga and Yippie Chi O.  The Chi Omega sisters are well-rounded women who value the importance of scholarship, philanthropy, social involvement, and sisterhood.

Chi Omega is truly a lifelong experience. The sisters you gain will quickly become the best friends you'll ever have. After graduation the bond will continue to grow as sisters become your bridesmaids and "aunts" to your children.

We believe a Chi Omega is not something you become, but is something you have always been.


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.
About 1/3 of Miami's student body is Greek- the largest student organization on campus!   

To learn more about Greek organizations at Miami, please check out the Cliff Alexander Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life:

Miami's sorority recruitment is held in the beginning of the spring semester.  Prospective new members will return to campus a week prior to the beginning of classes to begin the recruitment process.  

Please refer to  Miami's Panhellenic Association site regarding Recruitment at Miami:

Sincere Learning and Creditable Scholarship means that we care about our intellectual development.  We embrace the spirit and excitement of learning throughout our lives and encourage others to better themselves.

Community Service means that we want to make a difference on our campuses and in our communities.  We know that giving back to others unselfishly makes the world a better place and makes us better people.   Serving and giving helps to connect us.
