Here’s a small glimpse at the sisterhood that we call our home away from home! From our events at the chapter house to weekly chapter meetings to parties downtown, we Chi Omegas know how to have a good time. But all that partying doesn’t stop us from being leaders on campus. Our sisters are involved in a myriad of organizations, including Big Brothers Big Sisters, West Philadelphia Tutoring Project, Kite and Key, SPEC, The Daily Pennsylvanian, Penn Dance, Quaker Girls, Wharton Women, and Class Boards – just to name a few!

“Joining Chi Omega was a great decision for me and the sorority has become such an important part of my Penn experience. Whether we are going out as a group, goofing off at pledge events, dressing up for mixers, or just talking and laughing all night, my best memories are with my Chi O sisters. I never thought I could become so close with these girls so quickly, but now that I have, I know I couldn’t live without them. If I need a shoulder to cry on or a partner in crime, they are always there. Chi Omega is my crazy, loving, over-achieving, supportive, great-time-having family at Penn, and I am so grateful to have found it.”
