Hello all! My name is Allie Barker and I am beyond honored to be a sister of the Rho Mu Chapter of Chi Omega here at DePaul University. Nationally, Chi Omega is an incredible organization based on rich tradition and meaningful rituals. While rooted in an remarkable legacy, Chi Omega is always looking for ways to adapt; creating an incredible, empowering National image.
Going through recruitment and joining Rho Mu has proven to be one of the best decisions I have made during my time at DePaul. I have found a home with my sisters; who inspire, astound, and encourage me to always be the best I can be. These women (my sisters, friends, and chosen family) are the people that I can always count on in times of hardship, in times of joy, and in times of pure silliness.
Rho Mu is made up of self-defined women who are strong in the face of adversity; receptive in the face of diversity; and compassionate to not just our sisters, but to all people, on our own terms. We each have the ability to make Chi Omega’s six purposes our own, enriching our own lives through this sisterhood.
This organization has changed my perspective of what it means to be a sorority woman. A Chi Omega woman is not only self-empowered enough to lift others up and confident in who she is, but open-hearted to change and challenges, and ultimately whomever she chooses to be. These characteristics represent not only the sorority women, but the people, whom my sisters and I choose to be not just in our four years here at DePaul; but for a lifetime. I will always be eternally grateful of this family and am proud to call myself a Chi Omega sister forever.
Loyally and so much Love,
Sister & Chapter President
