Alpha Chi Omega (ΑΧΩ) is a women's fraternity that was founded on October 15, 1885 at DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana. We offer the opportunity for members to make an impact on the community, engage in leadership, and build life-long friendships. The Mission for Alpha Chi Omega is to embody a national women's organization that enriches the lives of its members through lifetime opportunities of friendship, leadership, learning, and service. It is through this mission that sisters of Alpha Chi share such strong bonds and memories that will forever shape the outcome of their lives. We encourage our members to be the best versions of themselves, not only in Alpha Chi Omega but in other organizations as well. The Omega Chapter at Washington State University was established in 1916.
