The central principle, upon which all others are built.
It is the spirit of love, fun, and family; the security that comes from knowing that there
will be sisters who will accept you for who you are while pushing you to be a better you.
HIGH STANDARDS OF PERSONNEL
The element that helps ensure the continuing success of the Fraternity.
Chi Omega chapters attract the finest young women who have a strong
commitment to success in college and all areas of their lives.
SINCERE LEARNING AND CREDITABLE SCHOLARSHIP
The ultimate reason for attending college. Chi Omega helps you obtain the finest
education possible through academic incentive programs, mentoring,
and scholarships from the Chi Omega Foundation.
PARTICIPATION IN CAMPUS ACTIVITIES
The element which ensures that Chi Omegas are active participants in the campus community.
Involvement in worthwhile campus activities broadens your perspective and gives you experience
in working with people of varying backgrounds and interests.
The preparation for life after college. The Chi Omega Career Development Portfolio,
"On the Way Up," prepares our members for beginning their chosen careers. "Crossroads," Chi Omega's network, is our way of linking, assisting, and contacting members who are moving, changing careers,
or just need a friend in a new city.
The philanthropic activities that contribute to your community's welfare.
Chi Omega allows each chapter to select its own philanthropy so that members may work on behalf
of organizations in their own community and see the results of their efforts.
CHI OMEGA SYMPHONY
"To live constantly above snobbery of word or deed;
to place scholarship before social obligations 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."
Ethel Switzer Howard, Xi Chapter
