Chi Omega is currently the largest Greek women's organization in the country. With over 240,000 initiates and 170 collegiate chapters across the U.S., Chi Omega is also the 2nd largest national women's organization behind the Girl Scouts of America. The University of Delaware Chapter of Chi Omega, Rho Lambda, was founded on April 9, 1988.

Chi Omega is founded upon six purposes; Scholarship, Community Service, High Standards of Personnel, Career Development, Friendship, and Campus Activities. As members, we are committed to the development of these purposes in our own lives as well as those of our sisters.

Our sisterhood is both strong and successful. Achieving "gold status" in CAP rankings, we dedicate ourselves both to our studies as well as participation in a variety of campus activities and community service events. Our national philanthropy, The Make a Wish Foundation, is a cause in which we are incredibly active. Through our annual Mr. Fraternity competition, we raise thousands of dollars to donate to Make a Wish. We are also incredibly active in the Greek community both philanthropically and socially.

We invite you to come explore the diversity and strength that is our sisterhood. We also hope you consider everything we have to offer; the opportunity for personal, academic, and social growth. Membership in Chi Omega is for a lifetime! We look forward to meeting you and wish you the best of luck with your consideration in going Greek.
