Although this campaign has concluded, if you would still like to make a donation to support Chi Omega, you may always do so here.
Chi Omega was nationally founded on April 5, 1895 at the University of Arkansas by Ina May Boles, Jean Vincenheller, Jobelle Holcombe, Alice Simonds, and Dr. Charles Richardson. We are now the largest women’s inter-fraternal organization!
Our newest pledge class, Spring ‘19, was 46 strong and radiant women committed to becoming Sisters on Purpose!
We currently have 102 sisters dedicated to our six founding purposes in the Phi Beta Chapter of Chi Omega. These purposes are Friendship, Personal Integrity, Service to Others, Academic Excellence and Intellectual Pursuits, Community and Campus Involvement, and Personal and Career Development.
2019 marks the 100th anniversary of the Phi Beta Chapter of Chi Omega’s founding at the University of Pittsburgh. Phi Beta was founded on December 6, 1919.
Every year, we devote over 350 hours to fundraising for our national philanthropy, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, that grants wishes to children with critical illnesses.
We have records of 885 Phi Beta alumnae with initiation years dating back to 1936!
