☆TO THE PSI KAPPA CHAPTER OF CHI OMEGA☆
A LETTER FROM OUR PRESIDENT:
Welcome to the Psi Kappa Chapter of Chi Omega! I am Sophie Anderson and I have the amazing opportunity to serve our chapter as President. This website is a quick glance into our chapter here at Clemson; we’re so glad you stopped by.
This website is just a sneak peak into what makes this group of young women so special and unique. We pride ourselves on being inclusive and valuing our differences because they are what make us so strong. Our members are from all over the globe and are the most hard-working, funniest, kindest, selfless women I know. At our core is our commitment to each other and our sisterhood through Chi Omega. Our shared interest in serving the community, achieving strong scholarship status, and our commitment to each other connects us and provides a sense of empowerment for all who partake in our sisterhood.
From my personal experience, these women have been the people I could rely on and lean on when I needed them, laughed until my stomach hurt, and grown with through my time so far from home. From being a shy, introverted girl who didn’t know anyone at Clemson to being empowered to step into leadership and confident in who I was; I attribute much of who I am today to the women who join me in Chi Omega letters. There is a confidence and beauty through relationships with women in the same phase of life, especially during your time at Clemson, and especially Chi Omegas. From spontaneous dance parties and movie nights cramming as many people as possible into a room on the hall, to making Valentine’s Day special for those at Clemson Downs (and them making Valentine’s special for us). From early morning walks to late night dance parties. From Bid Day to alum chapters. Chi Omegas have a way of surrounding each other with support.
Your years at Clemson will be some of the best of your life filled with adventure, laughter, and growth. You will make amazing memories that will last a lifetime with friends that will last a lifetime. While Chi Omega provides these friendships for the unforgettable memories, Chi Omegas have a way of being there during the tough times, too. I have Chi Omega to thank for some of my very favorite memories, and I hope you get a sense of what this sisterhood means through your screen.
Psi Kappa Chapter President
"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, 1904
