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's philanthropy events have included Chi-O Casino in the spring, and Candy Cane Lane on McCain in the fall! We have so much fun at these events, as does the rest of the K-State community.

Nationally, Chi Omega has raised 6.5 million dollars for the Make-A-Wish foundation, and Kappa Alpha hopes to continue to contribute to the foundation's success in years to come.
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.
In 1914, a group of seven women students organized club called Theta Chi. This was the first organized group on the K-State campus. Miss Louis Fewell, a K-State faculty member and a Chi Omega at Columbus University, acted as chaperon. Miss Fewell asked Dr. Mary Harman, a faculty member, to join Theta Chi with the hope that the chapter would be accepted by Chi Omega. The members of Theta Chi continued working, becoming more active in student affairs and maintaining a high standard of scholarship. Just before the opening of college in the fall of 1915, word came that they had been granted a charter. They then moved to a new chapter house, and the installation of the group was held on September 22, 1915. Since then, Chi Omega has been enriching the lives of women at Kansas State University with life-long friendship, service, personal development, and much more. The women of Chi Omega have a strong presence in the K-State community. 

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.
