With a vision to band together in unity and similar values, a group of women created a secret club. On April 5, 1895, at the University of Arkansas, the first chapter of the Chi Omega Fraternity was born. There were 5 founders and 14 original members. Today there are over 300,000 women from over 170 different campuses nationwide that stand together as Chi Omega sisters through established secrets and symbolism. Although we all come from a differing background, our virtues and aspirations as women come together in the lines of our symphony. Our flower is the white carnation and our colors are cardinal and straw. Chi Omega was originally founded on 6 purposes and we continue to uphold those standards:
1. Friendship
2. High Standards of Personnel
3. Scholarship
4. Campus Involvement
5. Career Development
6. Community Service
