Sisters inspired by our values who serve the world while keeping Chi Omega ever at heart.


To live constantly above snobbery of word or deed;

to place scholarship before social obligations and character before appearances;

to be in the best sense, democratic rather than "exclusive," and lovable rather than "popular;"

to work earnestly, to speak kindly, to act sincerely,

to choose thoughtfully that course which occasion and conscience demand; 

to be womanly always; 

to be discouraged never; 

in a word, to be loyal under any and all circumstances to my Fraternity and her highest teachings and to have her welfare ever at heart that she may be a symphony of high purpose and helpfulness in which there is no discordant note.



Written by Ethel Switzer Howard, Xi Chapter, 1904
