The Xi Kappa chapter of Chi Omega at Texas A&M University was founded in 1975. Thanks to our high standards of personnel, participation in campus activities, dedication to community service, and love for our sisters, we quickly became one of the strongest houses on campus. Since 1975, having started with just 16 charter members, we now boast an incredible membership of over 200 young women.
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.
Ethel Switzer Howard, Xi Chapter
