Chi Omega|Fraternity and Sorority Life

To live constantly above snobbery of wordor 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.

The Chi Omega Symphony

Throughout our lives, Chi Omega members are devoted to lifelong learning and scholarship. Our collegiate experiences equip us to pursue knowledge with discipline and sincerity.  Chi Omega is centered around six purposes that guide each member in their everyday lives. These are remembered by our left hand:

·         Scholarship (pointer finger): The number one reason why we are here.

·         Career Development (Middle finger): It rises above the rest.

·         Friendship (Ring finger): The lifeline to the heart.

·         Campus Activities (Pinky finger): Small but important.

·         Community Service (Thumb): It touches all the others.

High Standards of Personnel (Palm): It holds us all together.

All of these can be seen in any Chi Omega because they are the characteristics that tie us all together for a lifetime. 

At the University of Wyoming, Chi Omega’s participate in many campus activities including, ASUW, Multiple honoraries, Face AIDS, Fellowship of Christian Activities, Albany County Safe Project, as well as some collegiate athletics. 

We also strive to promote awareness through our community service endeavors some of which include, Make-A-Wish locally and nationally, Take Back the Night to promote awareness about sexual assault and domestic violence, Jackalope Jump for Special Olympics, and members are active in awareness walks for AIDS, M.S., Breast Cancer, Martin Luther King Day as well as others.

Today, a diverse and close group, the chapter holds scholars, dancers, study buddies, movie buffs, artists, music lovers, and spirited Poke fans.  Tomorrow, they will be future teachers, business women, doctors, lawyers, musicians, and leaders. 

While active membership in Chi Omega is only during our collegiate years, you will make a difference in Chi Omega and Chi Omega will make a difference in you.
