Greek Week:
To the men of Pi Kappa Alpha: Thanks for a great Greek week!
We placed second for Songfest, third for Battle of the Bands, and first for the Banner Contest.
Best yet, the Greek community raised 230,000 for Relay for Life.

Congratulations to Emily Kmiec for her leadership in helping the chapter receive the New Member Programming Award at the 2011 Greek Gala. 

We're excited about our second place finish in Greek Week 2011, with help from our wonderful fraternity brothers Alpha Epsilon Pi and Phi Kappa Sigma.

Xi Gamma ranked second academically among MSU sororities last year. Our spring semester GPA was 3.41, ahead of the 3.29 MSU sorority average and the 3.27 Chi Omega national average. Eleven members earned 4.0s first semester; 12 earned that top GPA in the spring.

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 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.

4.0 House Corporation Scholarship: These scholarships reward members who achieve a 4.0 GPA for a semester by paying towards their next-semester chapter dues. 


Lisa Kay Kapshandy Memorial Scholarship: 

Awarded to a junior and senior member each year who exemplify Chi Omega's principles and purposes: friendship, high personal standards, excellence in academics, career development, a wise choice of campus activities in and out of Chi Omega, and philanthropic and community service. Need may be considered. 

 Lisa, Xi Gamma '81 and Omega Chapter '83, brought joy to all she knew and embraced Chi Omega as a valued member and leader. She was awarded a bachelor's degree in advertising posthumously. With gratitude to Lisa's parents, Joe & Billie; brother Tim & his wife Marcy; and sister Kim ('76, Phi Epsilon, Ball State University) & her husband Joe Tatman for establishing this scholarship. The chapter appreciates the generous donations by Lisa's friends and family. 

Sisters Flourish
Chi Omega’s symbols are a visual representation of our purposes and ideals.

Chi Omega's badge is a monogram of the Greek letter "Chi" superimposed over the Greek letter "Omega." The fourteen stones, always pearls or diamonds, are set into the badge. Dr. Charles Richardson, one of Chi Omega's Founders, crafted our first badge from dental gold.  

Chi Omega's Crest was adopted in 1902. 

Chi Omega's flag has five vertical stripes, three of cardinal and two of straw, extending from a  cardinal bar at the top. 

Chi Omega's official ring was adopted in 1905. 

The owl is the most recognizable symbol of Chi Omega.

Chi Omega's flower is the white carnation. 
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.
