    Alpha Chi Omega

    Alpha Chi Omega (Alpha Chi)

    In the fall of 1885 at DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana, Professor James Hamilton Howe sought to forge a new sort of fraternity. Professor Howe was the Dean of the School of Music at DePauw, and he believed that the school could greatly benefit from a musical organization especially for female students. He knew of seven young women in particular who were devoted to both friendship and their musical studies, young women who had the potential to form a strong foundation for this new fraternity. After meeting with these students, drafting up the first constitution and by-laws, and agreeing that their common purpose was “to attain the highest musical culture and to cultivate those principles that embody true womanhood,” Professor Howe’s idea was realized with the founding of Alpha Chi Omega on October 15, 1885 (Alpha Chi).
