The Upsilon Chapter of Chi Omega is filled with girls of all kinds, but despite our various interests, hobbies, and passions there’s one thing we can all agree on in Chi Omega:
The sisterhood we share is real.
Chi Omega is more than an on-campus organization; Chi Omega is a sisterhood that laughs together, cries together, works together, eats together, and shares life with one another. We don’t promise life will be better or easier through joining Chi Omega, but we can promise that wherever you may go in life this sisterhood will be there to support you… and maybe bring you a Sonic drink along the way!
Here are some real life testimonies about our sisterhood from current and previous members of the Upsilon chapter of Chi Omega:
"When I joined the Upsilon chapter of Chi Omega I realized that I had entered a sisterhood where I would be accepted no matter what. These girls have encouraged me to grow and have pushed me to be a better version of myself. My sisters have become my home away from home and I can't imagine my life at college without them."
- Kelly Rawls
"The Upsilon chapter of Chi Omega has introduced me to many different types of people, be it inside our chapter or alumnae. I have learned that each memeber plays an integral part in my life no matter what their personality or gifting. I love seeing diverse girls being able to find their place and thrive."
- Sarah Hill
"When I started Union, I wanted to be a part of something that would help me to grow as an individual. The Upsilon chapter of Chi Omega has definitely served as that means. My sisters in Chi Omega have been a great support system. I can always count on them to pray when I ask them to and to hold me accountable when I need it. There have been many times that I have been encouraged with a hug or an unexpected letter from a sister. It’s the little things that we do for each other that keep us tightly knit. We not only love to serve those around us, but we also love to serve each other."
- Kayla McCanless
"Relationships are the basis of everything in this world. Learning how to deal with every kind of personality and situation has made me who I am today. The sisterhood of the Upsilon chapter of Chi Omega taught me how to love people even through our differences. It was more than I could have ever asked for in a sisterhood.

Sisterhood is one of the most important aspect of Chi Omega. It is the success of Upsilon's sisterhood that leads to the success of the chapter as a whole.

Upsilon's sisterhood events in the past have included the following:
- Chapter Dinners In Brewer
