Chi Omega’s official site gave me information on the purposes and principles of the prestigious sorority. The articles include information on members’ community and campus involvement so they can become well-rounded women. Over 300,000 initiates represent the founding purposes of friendship, integrity, service, academic excellence, involvement, and development, in which mold the prominent women that give Chi Omega such a high reputation. Chi Omega’s Symphony also displays the difference being a Chi Omega makes on turning a girl into a responsible, powerful woman. "Our Story."

Howard, Ethel Switzer. "Mission, Vision, and Symphony." Chi Omega Fraternity. N.p., n.d. Web. 22 Nov 2012. <http://www.chiomega.com/aboutus/missionvision>. Chi Omega’s 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.
