about us

Chi Omega is the largest women’s fraternal organization in the world with over 380,000 initiates wit 1 in 4 sorority women being a Chi Omega. Founded in 1895 at the University of Arkansas, Chi Omega has grown to 181 collegiate chapters, including our very own chapter!


Our chapter has received the "Award of Excellence", a national honor from Chi Omega, over the past 11 years. In the Spring of 2021, our chapter received the "Chapter of Excellence'' award from Millsaps College Greek Life. We look forward to continuing our tradition of being "womanly always and discouraged never" and striving for success all while supporting our sisters in Chi Omega. We cannot wait to celebrate our 88th year at Millsaps College.
