Congratulations New Members! Congratulations to all of our newly initiated members: we are so excited to be able to call all of you our sisters!

Congratulations, Epsilon Gamma!

Our incredible president and sister Abigail Lee was recently named Outstanding Chapter President at the 2014 Greek Banquet!! We could not be more proud of her for being an amazing leader and representation of our chapter. Congratulations and keep up the great work Abigail!

Epsilon Gamma recently hosted an Easter-themed Make-A-Wish event called Hoots and Hops. We invited Tulsa area "wish kids" and their families over for an afternoon of crafts, games, and a super fun egg-hunt. We had such a great time, and we hope we gave the families a great time as well! Thanks so much to community service chair Gracie Tapp and sisterhood chair Jamye Davis for tirelessly planning the event!

Friendship
Friendship is what binds us to each other and to our Fraternity.  The friendships we develop in Chi Omega give us a home across geography and generations and give us lasting support throughout our lives.

Our Director of Sisterhood & Friendship, Jamye Davis, plans a number of events to cultivate camaraderie throughout the year - past favorites include having a cupcake decorating party on Mom's day, Christmas decorating party each year, games and tailgating on Dad's day, celebrating our graduating sisters with Senior Week events, and Easter egg decorating. Just as important are the moments that arise spontaneously and turn into some of our favorite nights: the best stories often start with 3 A.M. QT runs, popcorn and watching the Bachelor in the Chi O house. And whether it's a random road trip or a semester abroad, Chi Omegas are always up for a good adventure!
Our lives are made better with the endless support that Chi Omega offers and the knowledge that everything is better with a sister beside you!

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.

Each autumn, Epsilon Gamma hosts Hootiefest, our week-long celebration of the Make-A-Wish Foundation's accomplishments and fundraiser for its efforts. Monday kicks off with a campus-wide dinner, with just about everything you could imagine as local restaurants donate everything from Mexican to Chinese to chili! With raffles and games throughout the night, the dinner allows us to combine two of our favorite things - raising money for Make-A-Wish and having a lot of fun! The week continues with the annual Chi O Sing competition, a singing competition that allows some of TU's most talented (...or just enthusiastic!) to show off their pipes for a good cause. Fall of 2012, Hootiefest raised $19,050, enough to fully fund 4 childrens' wishes! Our high standards for community service continued through Hootiefest 2013, when we again raised thousands of dollars!

It's an honor for Chi Omega to team up with such a wonderful organization - we consider our relationship with Make-A-Wish one of our most important focuses. We're lucky that this partnership extends beyond philanthropy; we also participate directly in Make-A-Wish functions. We love hosting send-off parties at the Chi Omega house, inviting Wish kids about to embark on their adventure to come play games, enjoy cake & ice cream, and celebrate their story with their families.

One of our most treasured traditions is hosting annual Make-A-Wish art parties at the Chi Omega house. Chi O's and Wish Kids team up to glue, glitter, and fingerpaint their ways to masterpieces, which are later auctioned to donors at Make-A-Wish fundraisers. The opportunity to interact with such extraordinary children and their families is a wonderful gift, and we love each of them!

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.


Scholarship
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.
Chi Omegas recognize that scholarship is the heart of our experience at the University of Tulsa. Our sisters excel academically, both individually and as a house; from  engineering to film studies to business to advertising , the LSAT to the MCAT, tough classes on campus or mastering study abroad... Chi Omegas have done it! 
Additionally, a favorite Epsilon Gamma tradition is the Faculty Appreciation Dinner. Each semester, every sister can a professor of her choice to join us for dinner at the Chi Omega house. This event also acknowledges women who have excelled academically by offering Silver & Golden Owl Society awards. The opportunity to express our gratitude to our professors is a welcome one... and faculty members as well as Chi Omegas look forward to this event each semester!
 The importance of academics at Chi Omega can be seen in our recent awards: the Point of Excellence in Academics from the TU Panhellenic Council and the Highest Overall GPA for the Biennium (2008-2010) for the small chapter category from our National Headquarters! We also won Most Improved Scholarship for the spring semester of 2012.
Symphony
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.

Every Chi Omega holds the Symphony close to her heart; at Epsilon Gamma, we pride ourselves on putting its words into action. Our guide to fraternity life, the Symphony expresses the ideals we share; despite our differing hometowns, interests, and opinions, each woman strives to uphold the ideals expressed in the Symphony we share.

"To live constantly above snobbery of word or deed; to place scholarship before social obligation 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."
