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.

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 Columbus Chi Omega Alumnae Chapter funds and awards the $500 annual Stella Milburn Scholarship  for a Chi Omega active whose home address is within 50 miles of Columbus and who is an initiate of a Chi Omega chapter in the state of Ohio.

About Stella Milburn
Stella Milburn passed away in 1985, but her love for Ohio State and Chi Omega lives on. She was a founding member of Zeta Alpha while earning a bachelor's degree in home economics, 1918. 

She began her career as a chemist for the State Department of Health Laboratory, located on the Ohio State campus. When she retired in 1961, she was a well-seasoned microbiologist with 43 years of experience in communicable diseases.  A dedicated Buckeye fan for many years, she never passed up an opportunity to be involved with students.  In 1984, Stella received the OSU Greek Alumni Service Award. 

If you have additional information about Stella or photos, please contact the webmaster, Jan Jenkins.
