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.
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.

We are renewing the North Shore Chicago Chi Omega Alumnae group and have a full year of events planned.  The North Shore Chicago Alumnae group is one of the oldest alumnae groups and we are in the process of connecting the hundreds of Chi Omega Sisters living in the northern suburbs of Chicago.  This group has members from numerous colleges and many towns in the northern suburbs of Chicago, as well as women representing their 20s to 80s!  What we have in common is our bond of Sisterhood, and together we can make a difference in our communities and in the lives of all Chi Omegas.
I am so looking forward to meeting each of you at future events!
