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.

This last year Eta Alpha raised enough money to grant the wish of a local Oregon child!
 
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.

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.
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.

Scholarship
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.

The women of Eta Alpha are determined when it comes to scholastics and career development.  Our chapter was so proud to have achieved first in grades among the sororities overall for the 2007-2008 school year.  The chapter maintained a collective G.P.A. above the all-women's average at Oregon State University as well.
Service
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.

Symphony
The Chi Omega Symphony has reflected the purposes of Chi Omega members since its composition in 1904 by Ethel Switzer Howard on the eve of her initiation into the Xi Chapter of Chi Omega at Northwestern University.


The women of Eta Alpha, along with every Chi Omega, carry the symphony in their heart and exemplify the standards and virtues that the symphony stands for. 

crest_3c.gifTo live constantly above snobbery of word or deed; to place scholarship before socialobligations and character before appearances; to be, in the best sense, democratic rather than'exclusive', and lovable rather than 'popular'; to work earnestly, to speak kindly, to act sincerely, to choose thoughtfully that course which occasion and conscience demand; to be womanly always; to be  discouraged never; in a word, to be loyal under any and all circumstances to my Fraternity and her  highest teachings and to have her welfare ever at heart that she may be a symphony of high  purpose and helpfulness in which there is no discordant note.

Welcome
Welcome to the Eta Alpha Chapter! Located on 23rd and Van Buren in the beautiful town of Corvallis, Eta Alpha was founded at Oregon State University in 1917.  Since then, Eta Alpha ladies have strived to uphold the purposes of Chi Omega.  The Eta Alpha Chapter prides itself on its hard work ethic, fun loving and spirited attitude, and its willingness to lend a hand.   Academics come very importantly to our chapter.  Along with being avid Oregon State fans, the Eta Alpha sisterhood enjoys participating in numerous activities and extracurriculars on campus as well as off.  Among our diverse Eta Alpha family, you can be sure to always count on unconditional Chi Omega love.
