History: Alpha Chi Omega was founded at DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana. Our tagline is "Real. Strong. Women" and our open motto is "Together let us seek the heights". Our patron goddess is Hera, guardian of women. Alpha Chi Omega celebrates Hera Day on March 1 in honor of our patron goddess. In February, we celebrate MacDowell month, honoring our founder's heritage in music and the arts, and Alpha Chi Omegas are encouraged to become patrons of the arts.
