Chi Omega


Consistent with the six purposes of Chi Omega, the Tau Alpha Chapter has been dedicated to giving back to our local Athens community through various service events. In addition to community service, the chapter encourages strong academic ethic. The Tau Alpha Chapter was founded in 1912 and is the one of the largest Greek organization on Ohio University's campus. 



Chi Omega Fraternity is an inter-generational women's organization forever committed to our founding purposes: Friendship, Personal Integrity, Service to Others, Academic Excellence, Community and Campus Involvement, and Personal and Career Development.
