Alpha Chi Omega:
Alpha Chi Omega was the first sorority chartered here at Oregon State on March 15, 1915. The women of Alpha Chi all well-represent our 5 standards, which include: exceptional character, personal development, financial responsibility, academic success, and leadership. Though we as women are diverse in our personalities, the commonalities of these expectations are what keep us bonded. Additionally, Alpha Chi's serve the local Corvallis Center Against Rape and Domestic Violence (CARDV) as our philanthropy. The passion that we share to support the awareness of domestic violence makes our two philanthropy events in the fall and spring semester successful. Lastly, our open motto "Together Let Us Seek The Heights" are words that we all personally cherish The Alpha Chi Omega organization has taught us as individuals to constantly reach for success in everyday aspects of life and to see beauty in all that we do. We look forward to sharing more of Alpha Chi Omega and our traditions with you. Click here to be access the chapter profile.

Chi Omega means something different to each one of its members. To some it is a home away from home or a safe place in the crazy world of collegiate studies, others see opportunities for leadership and a chance to get involved on campus and in the community. Even more members see Chi Omega as their time to make a difference and help others through our philanthropy, the Make-A-Wish program. While Chi Omega holds unique experiences for all of its members, one underlying commonality is that Chi Omega is a sister hood. A sister hood filled with bright, ambitious, genuine women who give each other the courage to change the world. While we all come from different back grounds, our symphony and 6 purposes allow us to come together to create not just a sisterhood, but a family and a support network. Chi omega is a house full of girls you can call on in times of need and a nation of women who will give you the courage to change the world. Click here to access chapter profile.

Delta Gamma is a sorority focused on sisterhood, long lasting friendships, scholarship, student involvement and giving back. Our sisterhood is built on not only creating a better world through service, but also on being committed to pursuing lives as active and involved individuals. Delta Gammas engage themselves with other chapters on campus by participating in philanthropies and other Greek events. In addition to our involvement with other Greek Organizations, numerous Beta Upsilon members serve as leaders of the greater OSU and Corvallis communities. We have members in ASOSU, Engineers without borders, Panhellenic Executive Council, Disability Access Services, and more. Off campus, we all spend time volunteering at a retirement home: Corvallis Caring Place, and additionally have numerous women who dedicate time volunteering for various organizations including Heartlnd Humane Society, Boys and Girls Club, and CASA Voices for Children. Education is another key component in Delta Gamma. Our chapter provides study table hours each term and has been in the top three sororities in grades for countless terms at OSU. Beyond involvement and scholarship, the Beta Upsilon Chapter is devoted to creating fun sisterhood activities for its members, as creating bonds of friendship is one of our top priorities. Another large focus of our organization nationwide is our biannual philanthropy events: Anchor Splash and Anchor Slam. Anchor Splash is an event that is held in the fall in which many Greek houses participate in events ranging from check-ins, to a synchronized swim performance, to a talent show. In the Fall of 2014, our chapter alone fundraised over $33,000 for the organization Service for Sight. In the spring we have Anchor Slam, which is a weekend dodgeball tournament. This Spring we were able to raise over $1,000, which was a magnificent improvement from previous years. These events are two of the highlights of the year as a member of Delta Gamma as we strive to always give back and Do Good. Click here to access chapter profile.

Cultivating Professional Women in Agriculture" is the mission of Sigma Alpha Sorority. Founded in 1978 at The Ohio State University, Sigma Alpha was created by five women who were interested in developing an organization that focuses on the career success of women in agriculture. The Xi Chapter was founded at Oregon State University on October 4th, 1991, and has grown to be one of the largest Sigma Alpha chapters in the nation. Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Fellowship are the four pillars of Sigma Alpha, and each member here at Oregon State incorporates those four pillars into her schoolwork, her extracurricular activities, and her life. Our philanthropy is Agriculture in the Classroom, which provides materials to classrooms K-12 and educates students about food, fiber, flowers, fishing, forestry, and farming. Sisters volunteer with AITC, and have the opportunity to give classroom presentations to elementary school students and make a difference in the lives of others. Lifelong friendships are developed through Sigma Alpha, and members have an interest in Agriculture and Forestry, so many sisters take classes and study together. Sigma Alpha represents some of the best students and leaders in the College of Agricultural Sciences and Forestry. Our members work in diverse careers after graduation, such as credit and loan agents, veterinarians, farmers and ranchers, agricultural educators and FFA advisors, entrepreneurs, and much more.
