As you may know, the purpose and mission of Simply Sorority is to bring sorority women together, celebrate sisterhood and break down negative stereotypes. While Simply Sorority exists to promote all sororities, today is very special for me and my Chi Omega sisters. One hundred and seventeen years ago today, our five founders began a truly special organization at the University of Arkansas. Happy Founders’ Day, Chi Omega!
I could go on and on (and on!) about my experiences in Chi Omega. As a collegian, I immersed myself in all that it had to offer. Study sessions, chapter meetings, Monday Night Dinners, fraternity socials, formals, football blocks – you name it. I was even lucky enough to serve my chapter as Recruitment Chair and represent my sisters during Formal Recruitment.
In college I was surrounded by women who made me want to become a better person. I was inspired – daily – by everything my sisters were achieving. I knew Chi Omega had truly become a home to me. I was accepted. I was encouraged. I was loved and respected by my sisters.
Although past tense doesn’t make much sense – I am accepted. I am encouraged, loved and respected. Chi Omega is for a lifetime!
To my Chi Omega sisters, near and far, thank you so much for an absolutely wonderful sisterhood. Here’s to another 117 years!
