Alpha Chi Omega (A-Chi-O, chi as in ky, not chee) is one of the officially recognized campus sororities.
Alpha Chi Omega is a national women's organization that enriches the lives of its members through lifetime opportunities for friendship, leadership, learning, and service. AXO was officially established on October 15, 1885 at Depauw University in Greencastle, Indiana by seven young women studying in the School of Music. The symbol, the golden lyre, commemorates and honors the sorority's musical history, and represents its goal to always find harmony in life. Its colors, scarlet red and olive green, were chosen to epitomize AXO's fall founding, and its flower, the red carnation, exemplifies these colors. Sisters of Alpha Chi live by the motto, "Together let us seek the heights," and are constantly striving to learn, achieve, grow, and give back to the community. Today, there are over 130 active chapters of Alpha Chi Omega, over 200,000 initiated sisters, and over 200 alumnae chapters.
The Theta Psi Chapter at Columbia University has been seeking the heights since April 1, 1989 and has fostered a tight-knit community of Real. Strong. Women. on campus for nearly 25 years.
