Chi Omega is more than Greek letters and a chapter house. We are over 120 years of emergent leaders, striving scholars, and most importantly, a profound sisterhood that not only enhances the collegiate experience but walks hand-in-hand with you far beyond your years at Southern Miss. Our members’ personalities and interests are wide-ranging because we recognize that these differences are what make our sisterhood so compelling. Through individuality, we are strengthened, and through our six purposes, we form Chi Omega at Southern Miss.
Letter from the President
Welcome! My name is Kate Phelps, and I currently serve as President for the Epsilon Delta chapter of Chi Omega at the University of Southern Mississippi. This website will offer you a small glimpse into who we are as Chi Omega women, and I hope that you find it helpful and interesting!
Here in Chi Omega, we believe in encouraging our sisters to reach their fullest potential, both as young women and as students, and it is our greatest joy to walk alongside each other as we journey through our college years and beyond. Through Chi Omega, we have developed friendships that truly last a lifetime and memories that we will forever cherish. I know that no matter what I am experiencing in my life, I have hundreds of Epsilon Delta sisters to share it with – sisters who will support me, guide me, and love me unconditionally.
Our sisters are leaders on the Southern Miss campus as well as in the Hattiesburg community. Together, we donate over 5,000 hours to various non-profit organizations in the community per year, and Chi Omegas are currently involved in over 70 student organizations at USM. In Chi Omega, we foster compassion between sisters that extends throughout our community, and we develop leadership skills that remain with us in all of our academic and professional affairs. Epsilon Delta is recognized as one of the top five Chi Omega chapters in the nation, and we accredit this achievement and all others to the bonds of our sisterhood.
Thank you so much for visiting our site! We are always happy to share with you a little bit of our sisterhood! Please feel free to contact me below.
Chi O Love and Mine,
Chi Omega President
Chi Omega Symphony
To live constantly above snobbery of word or deed; to place scholarship before social obligations and character before appearances; to be, in the best sense, democratic rather than 'exclusive,' and lovable rather than 'popular;' to work earnestly, to speak kindly, to act sincerely, to choose thoughtfully that course which occasion and conscience demand; to be womanly always; to be discouraged never; in a word, to be loyal under any and all circumstances to my Fraternity and her highest teachings and to have her welfare ever at heart that she may be a symphony of high purpose and helpfulness in which there is no discordant note.
