Alpha Chi Omega is a national women's organization that enriches the lives of our members through lifetime opportunities for friendship, leadership, learning, and service. Since our founding on October 15, 1885 at Depauw University in Greencastle, Indiana, we have been a society that encourages our members to "Seek the Heights," emphasizing the importance of being "Real. Strong. Women." Our symbol, the golden lyre, represents our aim to find joy in the small things and harmony in life. Since our founding, 135 Alpha Chi Omega chapters have been founded across the nation, with over 200,000 initiated members. The Alpha Phi chapter was chartered on September 13th, 1924.

Alpha Chi Facts
OF ALPHA CHI OMEGA
To shed the light of love and friendship round me,
To keep my life in tune with the world that I shall make no discords in the harmony of life,
To strike on the lyre of the universe only the notes of happiness, of joy, of peace,
To appreciate every little service rendered,
To see and appreciate all that is noble in another,
Be her badge what it may,
And to let my lyre send forth the chords of love, unselfishness, sincerity.
This is to be my symphony.
A Greek lyre of gold, having three twisted strings spanned diagonally by a raised and slightly rounded scroll of black enamel bearing the Greek letter Alpha Chi Omega in gold.

Domestic Violence Awareness & Prevention
Our chapter partners locally with the SAFE Alliance, an organization that exists to stop abuse for everyone by serving the survivors of child abuse, sexual assault and exploitation, and domestic violence. We dedicate ourselves to ending violence through prevention, advocacy, and comprehensive services for individuals, families, and communities that have been affected by abuse.
