Founded in 1895 at the University of Arkansas, Chi Omega is the largest women's fraternal organization in the world. We are proud to have over 174 collegiate chapters and over 300,000 initiates! One in four sorority women is a Chi Omega. Throughout Chi Omega's long and proud history, the Fraternity has brought its members unequaled opportunities for personal growth and development.
The Kappa Beta chapter at Rhodes college has so much to be proud of, from donating over 38,000 hours to The Make-A-Wish Foundation to recently being ranked No. 1 Sorority at the Campus Life Awards. Our chapter continues to flourish, with success in recruitment, outstanding academics, campus involvement and members who sincerely keep the Fraternity's welfare "ever at heart."
Catherine Boone, President
Hello! My name is Catherine Boone and I'm a Business and Religious Studies double major from Tuscaloosa, AL. I'm honored to serve as Kappa Beta's President and can't wait to see all of the exciting things our chapter will accomplish this year.
Chi Omegas around the world are united by virtues and principles that were set out for us 117 years ago by our founders. Today, our chapter prides itself on upholding those initial values. From helping the Make-A-Wish Foundation with granting wishes each year to welcoming 50 new Baby Hooties to the chapter this fall, I couldn't be more proud to say that I am a Chi Omega!
Please take a moment to look around our website and learn more about what makes our chapter so unique and our sorority so near to our hearts.

“Our Chi Omega heritage is unearned. It comes to us as a gift from others who have gone before. It is given in trust that we shall nurture and cherish it and, in our turn, pass this heritage on to new generations—stronger and more vital than when it came to us. . . ."
