Hi! Welcome to our website! ◡̈
Our wish for you is that, through our website, you will be able to catch a little glimpse about what Chi Omega at Ole Miss is all about.
Since I ran down the hill on Bid Day and into my big sister’s arms, I have had no doubt that choosing Chi Omega has been one of the best decisions that I have made in college so far. Chi Omega is a place where I have never felt like I have to keep up or try to fit in, but it has been a place where I feel like I belong by just simply being me. Chi Omega has allowed me to be my complete and total self with my guard down.
Here at Chi Omega, what you see is truly what you get! Chi Omega is a friendship organization. Above everything else, the reasons we exist is so that girls can find friends that make them feel cared about, heard, loved, and respected. Though college is definitely some of the most fun four years of your life, it can also be some of the hardest. It is a time of growth, so it is important to find friends that you know will be there for you throughout both the good and the bad. I have found that to be true here at Tau, and I am confident that I have formed genuine friendships that will go far beyond just my four years here.
We have such a diverse sisterhood with so many unique personalities, but that’s why it works so well. Because of this diversity, it has allowed me to grow more confident in myself and the friendships that I have found here. Though our differences, we form such a special bond. Being a Chi Omega at Ole Miss is about walking into the house and seeing Ms. Patti’s contagious smile. It is being able to get coffee with a friend when you’re having a bad week or just need to talk. It is getting to see the pure joy on a child’s face when we have a Make-A-Wish reveal at our house. It is having a study buddy. It is being goofy and having a good laugh. It is supporting our sisters and holding them accountable. It is our dedication to do our best to keep our Six Purposes at the forefront of our sisterhood. Lastly, it is about taking every and any opportunity to grow during our short time here at Ole Miss. From Orientation Leaders to RUF to ASB to RebelTHON to Communications Sciences and Disorders to Accounting, our sisters are involved all over campus and within the Oxford community. We celebrate our differences because that is what makes each member a unique piece of the puzzle in our sisterhood.
My experience throughout these past three years has been pretty much indescribable, but I hope this has helped you learn a little bit more about our chapter and what it has meant to me. I honestly don’t think I would be same person today without having these sisters by my side, pushing me to be the best version of myself. The friendships I have made here are exactly what my freshman self was looking for in the midst of a crazy transition from my home in Memphis to my new home here in Oxford.

chi omega symphony
To live constantly above snobbery of word or deed;
to place scholarship above social obligations
& 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
