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.

Congratulations to Sarah Volding, our 2016 recipient of the Emmeline Irwin Dodd Award!


Sarah is currently the GTB for the Epsilon Zeta Chapter at Stephen F. Austin University and has maintained a perfect 4.0 GPA since enrolling at SFA. In the fall of 2016, she will begin her junior year in pursuit of her nursing degree. Since joining Chi Omega, she has thoroughly enjoyed encouraging her sisters in their studies and being able to witness their growth. She stated, "The motivation they have toward their studies gives me encouragement to be a stronger and bolder leader."

The ladies of the Bay Area TX Alumnae Chapter want to wish Sarah the best of luck as she continues her college career!

Presented annually, the Emmeline Irwin Dodd Award is given to an outstanding graduating Chi Omega Officer of the Epsilon Zeta Chapter at Stephen F. Austin State University. It is named for and endowed by Emmeline Irwin Dodd, who is a founder and charter initiate of the chapter. She has remained active within our alumnae chapter as well as the Epsilon Zeta Chapter.

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.

For seven years, the Bay Area Texas Chi Omega Alumnae Chapter hosted an annual Make-A-Wish Dinner, co-chaired by Holly Perry (Alpha Zeta, Texas State) and Wendy Shaw (Epsilon Zeta, Stephen F. Austin).

Held at Perry's Steakhouse & Grille, the dinner consisted of a five course meal, silent and live auctions, and a raffle. Over these seven years, more than $430,000 was raised, which allowed 70 children to have their wishes granted. In the 2012 Chi Omega Convention, we were awarded the National Service Award for our success in our Make-A-Wish efforts!

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.
