I’m so excited to introduce you to this little corner of the Internet, and to the Lambda Chapter of Chi Omega at the University of Kansas. Whether you are a potential new member, alumna, parent, collegian or passing stranger, I hope this site allows you a glimpse into the sisterhood and integrity that serves as the foundation for everything we do as Chi Omegas.
My experience as a Chi Omega at KU has surpassed all of my expectations. I came to KU without knowing anyone. My family is a big KU family, so I was comfortable attending a school filled with familiarity; however, 22 hours away still seemed daunting. Driving from my hometown on the East Cost, I remembered wondering who I would meet and feeling nervous to leave my hometown best friends to go our separate ways. After pledging Chi Omega, I knew I found my home. From the very beginning, the women were welcoming with their Midwest charm. As I got to know everyone in the chapter more, I realized the complexity of women that are Chi Omegas. They are strong, driven, fun and genuine.
While Chi Omega does provide a network of support to improve the collegiate experience, as it did for me, our aims as an organization extend so much further. We seek to foster growth: as individuals, as students and as leaders. We strive towards the betterment of our community, through our actions and through our service. We embrace members on the merit of character, not appearance or any other shallow metric. I know firmly that the women around me are there for whatever I may need: studying for that impossible final or just a trip to Sonic. These women make me laugh, surround me with constant positivity and motivate me scholastically all while having lots of fun.
To be womanly always, to be discouraged never.
