    Alpha Chi Omega was founded at DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana -- October 15, 1885.  In 1885 the Dean of this prestigious music school  invited seven young women to start a women's fraternity -- Anna Allen, Olive Burnett, Bertha Deniston, Amy DuBois, Nellie Gamble, Bessie Grooms and Estelle Leonard. This talented group of young women included 2 singers, 3 pianists, a composer and a cellist/ violinist/ bassist.

    In the beginning, association with the music school was preferred however, the women's fraternity was never strictly a musical organization. Its members actually graduated from several departments within the university. The founders selected the greek letter A (Alpha) because it was the very first sorority started at a school of music, they chose Ω (Omega) because they believed that they would also be the last fraternity of this kind. "Kai" (meaning and) was also added but later changed to Χ (Chi).

    Today there are 132 chapters of Alpha Chi Omega at colleges and universities across the country, with over 200,000 lifetime members. Currently, almost all the chapters are working to end domestic violence. They do this by volunteering at women's shelters, collecting clothing and other need supplies for women and children living in the shelters, and staffing domestic violence hotlines.

    Any woman who is part of a legacy - meaning her mother, grandmother  and great-grandmother are Alpha Chi Omega members - has an excellent chance at being accepted into the organization as well. Those strong connections are very important but being a legacy doesn't necessarily guarantee membership. Also, Alumna Initiates are women who weren't Alpha Chi Omega members in college and may have graduated many years ago. Alpha Chi Omega offers these women a fantastic opportunity to be part of the organization and benefit from all the wonderful things being a part of Alpha Chi Omega, has to offer.
