Helping to maintain these families' “home away from home” while their children are sick is something we are honored to have the privilege to do. When our sisters have free time, we can be found spending time together on the intramural fields, at one of our formals or mixers, attending Mercer’s athletic events, or relaxing on the ADPi porch.

By 1910, our Fraternity had expanded into every part of the continental United States. Within 15 years Chi Omega chapters spanned the country-from Maine to California, Oregon to Florida, Texas to Illinois. Whenever a new chapter was installed, members in other chapters wore Chi Omega's colors beneath their pins and sent letters of welcome and congratulations.
