Benefits of Joining Chi Omega

Sorority membership provides an opportunity for members to reach their fullest potentials and gain access to a supportive network of women that will help them grow far beyond their college days. Membership in fraternal organizations have been linked to higher well-being for college graduates

In a 2014 Gallup-Purdue Index Study, it was found that college graduates who were in fraternities and sororities were more likely to be thriving in all five critical elements of well-being (purpose, social, financial, physical and community). Subjects were found to have:

  • Felt more motivated to achieve goals
  • Had stronger emotional support systems
  • Been more effective at managing economic life and increased financial security
  • Been more likely to be engaged in the community
  • Higher rates of physical wellbeing
  • Fraternity and sorority members were also found to be more engaged in the workplace and invested in experiential learning opportunities.

Chi Omega is the largest sorority in the National Panhellenic Conference, with the most members and the most collegiate chapters. While we are proud of being the largest fraternal network for women, we are even more proud of the values each of our Sisters exhibits every day.

Rather than focusing on “fitting in,” Chi Omega provides a space for our members to BELONG… a place for Sisters to connect with like-hearted friends who live authentically and who are there for one another when it matters.

A Chi Omega’s collegiate years are just the beginning. Sisters will find lifelong support systems and meaningful connections through the largest alumnae network of any sorority. No matter your location, career, or interest, you will always find a Sister to connect with – even if it’s through Zoom.
