#thisishome because Chi Omega allows us to be the purest forms of ourselves and has helped us make connections with some of the strongest and brightest women. Through these relationships we are encouraged to be womanly always and discouraged never. Because of Chi Omega, we will forever be sisters on purpose.
My name is Nicole and being part of Chi Omega for the last three years has truly been the most enriching experience of my life. Even though the recruitment season can seem so overwhelming, don’t worry—we’ve all been in your shoes. Visiting each house, I found that the women I spoke to were accomplished, passionate and inspiring, showing me a glimpse into the many opportunities I would find upon joining such an amazing organization of women.
Finding my chapter, Chi Omega, within the UF Panhellenic community is something I am grateful for every time I think about my best friends, role models, and you (the next aspiring Greek woman who will make the perfect addition to your future chapter)! I walk into any room in our house and still feel that sense of inspiration I felt that sticky august week three years ago. The beautiful part of being a Chi Omega is the constant feeling of encouragement not only to be myself, but to work toward bettering myself and others every day. Joining this sisterhood has filled my college days with endless laughs, memories and personal growth, but what I cherish most is knowing that Chi Omega is for a lifetime.
Trust me when I write, there is a place where you are meant to be, where you are known and loved for who you are and who you will become. Thank you for taking a bold step to find your home away from home!
Go Greek, Go Chi O!
