HISTORY OF ALPHA CHI OMEGA


Alpha Chi Omega was founded on October 15, 1885 at DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana. Professor James Hamilton Howe, Dean of the Music School, invited seven young women from the school to attend a meeting for the purpose of forming a society. The first appearance of the seven founders - Anna Allen, Olive Burnett, Bertha Deniston, Amy DuBois, Nellie Gamble, Bessie Grooms and Estelle Leonard was in Meharry Hall, where they wore scarlet and olive green ribbon streamers attached to their dresses. 

These women chose the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet—Alpha and Omega, with “Kai” meaning "And" in the middle, which they later changed to the Greek letter Chi. Our founders were the first fraternity in the music school and chose their name because they also believed they would be the last such organization.

According to our founders, the purpose of Alpha Chi Omega is to advance “the intellectual, social and moral culture” of its members. Today, Alpha Chi Omega Sorority, the Alpha Chi Omega Foundation, and our National Housing Corporation serve more than 200,000 members in more than 130 collegiate chapters and 200 alumnae chapters nationwide.

BETA SIGMA CHAPTER


Alpha Chi Omega at the University of Georgia is a sisterhood founded on the basis of love, loyalty, and friendship. Beta Sigma Chapter was founded in January of 1938 at UGA. We pride ourselves in setting standards on our campus by adhering to our five organizational principles of academic interest, character, financial responsibility, leadership ability, and personal development. 

Alpha Chi takes great pride in being a sisterhood full of well-rounded, diverse, and talented women who help make our organization unique and authentic. Our sisters are individuals who have an undeniable passion for philanthropy, a notable presence on campus through leadership in various organizations, and continually uphold high academic standards.
