The sorority Chi Omega will be joining GW’s Greek-letter community beginning in October, the Panhellenic Association said in a press release.
The Phi Alpha chapter of Chi Omega was the second sorority established at GW and is returning to campus after a 40-year absence.
Chi Omega was selected out of three sororities that gave extension presentations to the Panhellenic Association last month, and chosen by the Panhellenic Extension Committee made up of members from each of the nine Panhellenic sororities. The two sororities not chosen were Kappa Alpha Theta and Delta Delta Delta.
“As the Greek community at GW celebrates its 150th anniversary, we are very excited to welcome Chi Omega back to campus. They will be a great addition to the fraternity and sorority experience at GW,” said director of Greek Life Dean Harwood in a news release.
