TO THE PSI KAPPA CHAPTER OF CHI OMEGA
A LETTER FROM OUR PRESIDENT:
Welcome to the Psi Kappa chapter of Chi Omega at Clemson University! My name is Daly Walsh, and I am so lucky to be able to say that I serve as the President of this extraordinary chapter. This website is a sneak peek into our sisterhood; we couldn’t be happier that you decided to take a glance at what makes this chapter so special.
This website highlights just the beginning of how amazing the women who make up our chapter are. Although from all corners of the world, we all find a home in our slice of the globe, the small town of Clemson in South Carolina’s upstate. I find absolute confidence in the idea that Chi Omega has created that sense of home in all our members due to our devotion to sisterhood. The sisters of our chapter are empowered, and incredible women, leaders, scholars, and, most importantly, the best friends a girl can have. Each and every one of our members play a part in the excellence of our chapter, no matter how big or small their role might be. As a group, we pride ourselves on inclusion, serving the community, achieving impressive academic status, and creating bonds that will last a lifetime.
If someone had told me I would be the President of this chapter back when I opened my bid card, I wouldn't have believed them for a second. During my time as a Clemson student, I have grown into a confident and empowered woman, and I owe all of that growth to my sisters in Chi Omega. I wouldn’t be able to be the leader I am today without the eight other impeccable girls on our Executive Board or the dedication of the membership in Psi Kappa.
It’s truly the people that make the place. Your sisters in Cardinal & Straw will cheer you on during your grandest accomplishments and be your backbone during your roughest days as a collegian. From cheering on your hall roommate for eating as many wings as she can to raise money for MakeAWish to going through 49 other closets on the hall to find the perfect gameday outfit. From sisterhood spin classes to running down the hill with your little after a Clemson win. From shouting out the sister of the week at a Sunday chapter meeting to jumping into Lake Hartwell on your last bid day as a senior. From putting on your first XO shirt after getting your bid to when your Clemson ring gets turned on Graduation AND BEYOND, your sisters will always have your back and be your biggest support system.
I have Chi Omega to thank for some of my most cherished memories, and I hope you can feel the strength of our sisterhood and the love we all have for Psi Kappa through your screen.
