A message from our president...
On behalf of the Alpha Beta chapter of Chi Omega, welcome! My name is Emma Shofner and I am so humbled and honored to be serving as President for Chi Omega. Our hope is that as you view our website, you catch a glimpse into what makes our chapter one-of-a-kind.
I have been beyond blessed to be surrounded by these incredible women that make up this chapter. When I was going through Recruitment back in 2019, I was instantly drawn to Chi Omega. I saw girls who welcomed and loved me for who I was, and girls who wanted to know my heart. Through the intentional conversations I had and the genuine girls I met, I knew Chi Omega is where I wanted to call my home.
Chi Omega’s are truly a well-rounded and diverse group of women! We seek to foster individual growth among each of out chapter members so that they can positively impact our university and community in their own unique way. Whether that be their involvement in Student Government Association, War Eagle Girls and Plainsman, Auburn Cheer, or leadership within their church, it is hard to find an organization that a Chi Omega is not involved in. As you can see, their activities and interests are extremely varied, yet combined they reflect our hearts of service to the university and surrounding community. I owe a big thanks to the exceptional women of Chi Omega because of the way they have pushed me to pursue excellence in all aspects of life.
Chi Omega to me is a breath of fresh air, a source of encouragement, and a place where I have found life-giving friendships. I fell in love with Chi Omega on Bid Day back in 2019 and since then I have only grown to love it even more. I can confidently say that Chi Omega has played a part into making me the person I am today, and ultimately, has shaped me into a better leader. My prayer as President is to reflect the ideals and characteristics that this Fraternity values. Glory be to God for the women who have entrusted me to lead this chapter as I am so grateful for each of them. I am so glad you stopped by and I hope you are able to gain a better understanding into what Chi Omega is all about!
The Chi Omega 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.”
