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.

In the spring of 2014, after a successful Crawfish boil fundraiser, we were able to send our fellow Ole Miss student Megan on a Disney cruise! We all dressed in our best beach attire and put on an Ariel "musical" to help our new friend celebrate her wish coming true!

In December 2013, through our philanthropy Make-a-Wish, we sent Oxford native Chance to New York City with his family. We granted the wish as a chapter, dressing & decorating NYC-style. When Chance unwrapped his giant present, a note attached to balloons floated out to tell him about his trip!

In May 2012 the Tau chapter granted a wish for a 17 year old girl to go to Disney world! You can view pictures of our wish reveals under our photo tab.


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.


Welcome to the Tau Chapter of Chi Omega located at the University of Mississippi. Our chapter has 373 members from all over the country. Chi O is not just a sorority, it's a place to call home. Chi O provides a network of friendships and support that last a lifetime. We are proud to be part of such a wonderful group of women. Thanks for visiting our site!
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.

These sisters spent a spring Saturday giving back to the Oxford community through the Ole Miss Big Event!

The Tau Chapter of Chi Omega is very active in the community. This past holiday season, we collected pajamas for Oxford residents in need, & many pairs of big & little sisters participated in Operation Christmas Child, filling boxes with toys & necessities for kids around the world.

Annually, Tau chapter forms a team to participate in the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life, and in our University's Big Event day of service in our local Oxford Community. We also form small groups to serve and join in fellowship with Oxford residents at More than a Meal, and several of our education majors volunteer by tutoring and mentoring with Leap Frog.

Sisters Flourish
