Letter from the President
Hello! My name is Alex Mabry and I am the President of Chi Omega Kappa Chapter. I'm so glad you decided to check out our website! Here you can find an overview of what Chi Omega represents and who we are. You will quickly learn why these women are my closest friends and role models.
I’ll be honest with you. As a freshman, I was not sure that I wanted to join a sorority. But by the end of recruitment week, I knew that all of the women I was meeting at Chi Omega were the kind of women that I would want to be like in college. After just one week I was inspired by the women of this house and now, after 3 years, I truly believe I am a better student, a better friend, and an all around better person because of Chi Omegas influence on me.
The women of Chi Omega are passionate, driven, caring, poised, and compassionate. We are driven by our Fraternity’s six purposes. Friendship can be seen in the genuine bonds between the women of Chi Omega. It is amazing to see the friendships that develop between women with such diverse backgrounds, interests, and futures. Holding each other accountable to high standards of character is an important aspect of those genuine bonds. We are constantly challenging each other to take actions that will benefit our sisters and ourselves. As a chapter that consistently has one of the highest Greek GPAs on campus, Chi Omega exemplifies our purpose of scholarship. Sisters are always helping each other out; we form study groups with each other, help women who are taking class we previously have taken, and constantly strive to reach our academic goals.
Our campus involvement is diverse and widespread. Many women participate, and hold leadership positions, in musical groups, philanthropic activities, student government, intramural or University sports teams, or academic-based organizations. Chi Omega women also participate in career development opportunities. I always look forward to coming back to Chi O after summer break and hearing about all of the incredible internship and job experiences the women in this house had, whether that be an internship in New York City, or a part-time job in Australia, Chi Omegas are always taking advantage of opportunities to gain career experience in some of the coolest places. Lastly, Chi Omegas exemplify our purpose of community service with participation in philanthropic activities. We also host our annual Hallo-Wing Fling in which we provide all-you-can-eat chicken wings and fun activities which raises money for our philanthropy, the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Chi Omega members’ commitment to friendship, character, scholarship, campus involvement, career development, and community service aid us in living with the highest form of character possible. Being surrounded by this group of diverse, talented, and driven women during my time at college has molded me into a woman of dignity, grace, and self-respect. These women have been here to support each other through the ups and downs and to challenge our sisters to make the most of every opportunity. Being a Chi Omega has made my college journey remarkable and it will continue to guide me in my future endeavors, because Chi Omega is more than just four years; it is for a lifetime.
Loyally in Chi Omega,
Alex Mabry, Chapter President
