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.

History of Mu Gamma

In the fall of 1867, the Zetolophian Literary Society was founded. Membership included women students interested in literary work. Programs, opened to faculty and students, were given weekly. In 1912, it became a social fraternity with the name of Zeta Lambda Sigma. They were called Zetos. They led the campus in scholarship and extracurricular activities. On May 14, 1927, the group was installed as the Mu Gamma Chapter of Chi Omega. It was the second chapter in Missouri. The installation was held in the Christian Church in Canton, MO. At first, the chapter had a room in Henderson Hall. Later it was given a room in the dorm, Johnson Hall. In 1942, the girls moved into the first sorority house on the hill, and in 1947, they moved into Cason Hall, where they still reside.

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're excited for the new structure of recruitment this year. 

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.

Right now, Chi Omega has the highest GPA on campus.
We also hold the New Member Scholarship Cup!

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.

To live constantly above snobbery of word or deed; to place scholarship before social obligations and character before appearances; to be, in the best sense, democratic rather than 'exclusive', and lovable rather than 'popular'; to work earnestly, to speak kindly, to act sincerely, to choose thoughtfully that course which occasion and conscience demand; to be womanly always; to be discouraged never; in a word, to be loyal under any and all circumstances to my Fraternity and her highest teachings and to have her welfare ever at heart that she may be a symphony of high purpose and helpfulness in which there is no discordant note.

Ethel Switzer Howard, Xi Chapter, Northwestern University, 1904
