Digital History

Founded at DePauw University in 1885, Alpha Chi Omega has been developing real, strong women for over 135 years. Over the course of those years, Alpha Chi has preserved a wealth of historical materials such as member photographs, letters, meeting notes, scrapbooks, jewelry and more. Previously, these artifacts have lived at the national headquarters or at the individual chapters, but today, these artifacts are also being preserved digitally on this dynamic site in an effort to share the Fraternity’s history with current and future generations.
