Letter to the pNM

Welcome to the University of Kentucky; we are so excited to have you! Among graduating high school, moving away from home and starting a new phase of your life in Lexington, you have been busy! I hope that you are proud of yourself and excited to see everything that UK and Chi Omega have to offer.

Founded in 1895, at the University of Arkansas, Chi Omega is the largest women’s fraternal organization in the world with over 355,000 initiates, 181 collegiate chapters and over 240 alumnae chapters. The Lambda Alpha chapter of Chi Omega was established in 1914 and has since made a prominent mark on campus. Lambda Alpha women pride themselves on being well-rounded, educated and involved individuals. Our six purposes work as a goal for our women to become their best selves: friendship, high standards of personnel, sincere learning and credible scholarship, participation in campus activities, career development and strong community service. Our members are active throughout campus and the greater Lexington area. Chi Omega hosts several philanthropy events, including a golf classic and Greek Sing to support the Make-A-Wish Organization. Last year, Lambda Alpha raised over $165,000 for Make-A-Wish. In the spring, Chi Omega also co-hosts a suicide prevention walk. Since I joined Chi Omega in the fall of 2016, I have never been happier! These women make my college days sweet and my memories filled with love. They push me daily to be a better version of myself and I am always grateful for their friendships and inspirations.

We are excited to welcome you to the University of Kentucky and meet you soon!
