Real Strong Women
To encourage the true spirit of sisterhood, to develop through personal effort a high moral and mental stand, and to advance the appreciation and practice of fine arts among its members
The Iota Lambda chapter of Alpha chi Omega was founded on March 2, 1991. The women of TCU Alpha Chi Omega all have unique talents, personalities and backgrounds that contribute to the success of our chapter. Since 1991, out chapter has been nominated for and awarded many local and national achievements, including seven National Council Continuing Excellence Awards in recent years. We are in the top 5 houses for grades, intramural champions, and we raise more money than any other Alpha Chi Omega Chapter in the country for domestic violence awareness.
Back when America was getting used to the notion that women belonged in college at all, the dean of DePauw’s School of Music, Professor James Hamilton Howe, invited seven of his female students to form a women's society within the school. Those women, our founders, took professor Howe's suggestion a step further and formed a women's fraternity, only the sixth of tis kind in the country on October 15th, 1885
Our founders wanted Alpha Chi Omega to advance "the intellectual, social and moral culture" of its members. Today, our women's fraternity, the Alpha Chi Omega Foundation and our National Housing Corporation serve more than 200,000 members in more than 130 collegiate chapters and 200 alumnae chapters nationwide
