Chi Omega was founded nationally on April 5, 1895 at the University of Arkansas and today stands as the largest women’s fraternal organization in the world with over 178 collegiate chapter and 320,000 initiates. Chartered on the Hillsdale College campus on September 15, 1924, for almost 100 years the sisters of the Rho Gamma chapter of Chi Omega have deliberately lived out their 6 founding purposes: Friendship, Personal Integrity, Service to Others, Academic Excellence and Intellectual Pursuits, Community and Campus Involvement, and Personal and Career Development, all while supporting their 7th purpose: food. Involved in nearly every group on campus, Chi Omegas take pride in their diversity of thought and interest, coming together as a sisterhood to foster friendship and serve the community. In 2016 alone, they raised over 6,000 dollars for Chi Omega’s National Philanthropy the Make-A-Wish foundation through their annual pancake breakfast, volley ball tournament, and comedy night. They also donated around 1500 service hours—more than any other Greek organization on campus. Additionally, the Chi Omegas take pride in working together as a house in activities such as Intramural sports, the homecoming dance competition, and Greek Week, which they have won 35 of the last 36 years. Inspired by their symphony and purposes, Chi Omegas are “discouraged never,” living as sisters of purpose, on purpose.
