Founded on April 5, 1895, Chi Omega is the largest women's fraternity by membership. There are over 355,000 initiated members and over 28,000 undergraduates added every year!
Chi Omega was founded at the University of Arkansas by four women, and with the help from a Kappa Sigma member Dr. Charles Richardson. With Richardson's help, the fraternity was expanded to various schools, even making it to London, Ontario. By 1905, 10 years later, Chi Omega had a total of 17 chapters in the U.S.!
Chi Omega partnered with Make-A-Wish Foundation in 2002. Sisters across many chapters have since raised well over 19 million dollars since it's partnership!
