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.

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.Recruitment takes place at Hanover College in early January.  If you know of a young women who would be an asset to Chi Omega, please take the time to introduce her to our alumnae and collegian sisters by completing a RIF.  For more information, please contact our RIF chair, Dawn Doup.

Community Service means that we want to make a difference on our campuses and in our communities.  We know that giving back to others unselfishly makes the world a better place and makes us better people.   Serving and giving helps to connect us.Even though we are a small chapter, we do make community service a priority.  We make a difference with the following organizations:  Columbus Parks and Rec, Fairlawn Presbyterian Church, Memorial Baptist Church, St. Bartholomew Parish, Bartholomew County 4-H, and many more!
Sisters Flourish
We have not forgotten our roots!!  Most members of our alumnae chapter also serve on the Advisory Board or House Corporation Board of Upsilon Lambda Chapter.  We enjoy making connections with our younger sisters, and we are proud each year as another class graduates.
