Chi Omega Fraternity



In early April 1895, Chi Omega was founded in Fayetteville at the University of Arkansas when four young women, with the help of a local dentist, established the secrets and symbolism of Chi Omega. Chi Omega is the largest women’s fraternal organization in the world with over 320,000 initiates, 178 collegiate chapters, and over 240 alumnae chapters. Over the years, Chi Omega has provided its members with unique opportunities in leadership, scholarship, and lifelong friendships.
