ALABAMA CHI OMEGA
A letter from our president
On behalf of Chi Omega Nu Beta, welcome! My name is Adeline Treadwell, and I am honored to serve as our current Chapter President at the University of Alabama. Here on our website, you can find a small glimpse into the lives of our chapter members and all that Chi Omega has to offer!
At the University of Alabama, Nu Beta continues to be an outstanding chapter in all aspects around campus. Our grade point average is consistently above the all-sorority average and ranked among the top sorority grades. In addition to our stellar academic achievement, our members are a part of the most prestigious organizations on campus, including the University Fellows Experience, the Blackburn Institute, Capstone Men and Women, Mortar Board, the Anderson Society, XXXI, and many more. Nu Beta’s partnership with the Make-a-Wish Foundation has given us the special opportunity to be a part of granting wishes in the Alabama community, in addition to raising over $70,000 for the 2019-2020 school year. Our local philanthropy, The Boys and Girls Club of West Alabama, welcomes our members on a weekly basis for tutoring and after school fun, as well as multiple holiday parties.
Our members are a group of talented women investing themselves all over the campus and the city of Tuscaloosa. I am honored to have the opportunity to surround myself with such accomplished women, and I hope that each of you are able to see the many reasons why we love Chi Omega Nu Beta so very much.
Coming to the University of Alabama, I never expected to find the community of love and encouragement that met me at the doors of Chi Omega. During the challenging transition into college, the women in Chi Omega welcomed me with open arms. These women believed in me, inspired me to grow in many ways, and encouraged me to get involved and put my heart into Chi Omega. Instantly, I was able to build genuine relationships, which I am proud to say is the foundation of our chapter. These relationships and these people have given me a true sisterhood– a sisterhood that I’ll cherish for the rest of my life.
I look forward to opportunities as President to promote these meaningful friendships and our long-lasting sisterhood. As you can see, Chi Omega Nu Beta is one of a kind, and I truly could not love it more if I tried.

CHI OMEGA SYMPHONY
"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

“There are a million things I could say about why I love Chi O. I knew one person in my pledge class on Bid Day and now I have friendships and memories that will last a life time. Girls of Chi Omega Nu Beta are the most genuine people who truly care about each other and they have the most fun! Choose wisely!!”

“Chi Omega has been the biggest blessing of my college experience. Every day I am surrounded by encouraging and caring women who love me for me. I found the people that are my forever friends and I could not be more thankful for my choice to run home to XO.”
“Recently my parents told me I was moving across the country and I became sad to leave my home and old friends behind. But a trip to my new home put things into perspective for me. I can move to any part of the country and feel safe and at home because a sister is there to welcome me with open arms. No matter where I go it feels like home and that is the best part of being a Chi Omega Nu Beta.”
PARK CITY, UT
“Chi Omegas are the girls that embraced me as I was the second I ran home on bid day. They have inspired me to achieve unimaginable goals and shaped me into the girl my high school self strived to be. I could not imagine calling any other place home.”
“I love Chi O because of the authenticity of every girl in the house. I know that no matter what’s happening that day I can walk in the house and be met by girls who genuinely care about me and want the best for me!”
