The Sigma Epsilon Chapter of Chi Omega is proud to be a part of the Greek community on Vanderbilt’s campus. Our sisters are dynamic, from dancers, to athletes, to service leaders, to student workers, to RUF and Hillel members; we all share a love for Chi Omega. Our diverse campus involvement is an aspect of our chapter that we pride ourselves on and is a trait we think makes our sisterhood standout. Not only are the sisters of Chi O involved in over 75 organizations, but they also serve on the board of over half of those. It is a privilege to call the Vanderbilt Performing Arts Council President, the Vanderbilt Programming Board President, the Blood Water Mission President, and the Habitat for Humanity Board President, to name just a few, Chi Omegas.
Each year, Chi Omega holds an annual Chi O Fashion Show benefitting the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Middle Tennessee. This past year, our chapter rallied behind this cause and exceeded our goal, granting over ten wishes (a grand total of $76,282). Our chapter loves this event because we are able to see the impact we make with the money we raise in the smiles of the Wish Children, the tears of their families, and the ability to spread what a worthwhile cause Make-A-Wish is to the greater Vanderbilt community. The sisters of Chi Omega also take pride in their studies and academics here at Vanderbilt. For the past two consecutive semesters, Chi Omega has had the highest GPA among all Panhellenic chapters. Additionally, our chapter has recently been recognized among Vanderbilt Greek Life for having the most Outstanding Philanthropy Project, Outstanding Intellectual Development, and Outstanding Campus Involvement.
