About Our Organization

Founded in 1969 at the University of Texas at Arlington, the Epsilon Lambda chapter of Alpha Chi Omega is one of four National Panhellenic Conference sororities on campus. We are overseen by the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life (F&SL), as well as the College Panhellenic Council (CPH), a council comprised of an executive board with delegates from each sorority. The council oversees each sorority’s community involvement and ensures each adheres to CPH rules of conduct and standards.

In May 2020, our chapter was nominated for and won Top Chapter of the Year, an award given to one chapter each year for best representing the F&SL and CPH Chapter Pillars of Excellence.

As we represent our university and community, our women strive for excellence in every aspect. Our organization’s vision for 2020 is to discover, grow, engage, and sustain. We hold true to our values and believe in the unity of real, strong women.

Below is the Symphony of Alpha Chi Omega, our organization’s symphony to sustain our traditions of harmony and unity.

To see beauty even in the common things of life,
to shed the light of love and friendship round me;
to keep my life in tune with the world that I shall make no discords in the harmony of life;
to strike on the lyre of the universe only the notes of happiness, of joy, of peace;
to appreciate every little service rendered;
to see and appreciate all that is noble in another, be her badge what it may;
and to let my lyre send forth the chords of love, unselfishness, sincerity.
This is to be my symphony.
