About

Name

“Alpha,” first letter of the Greek alphabet, represented the first sorority in the school of music. “Omega,” last letter of the Greek alphabet, represented the last such sorority being founded. “Kai,” meaning “and,” was soon changed to “Chi,” a letter from the Greek alphabet.

Foundation

Our founders, Anna Allen, Olive Burnett, Bertha Deniston, Amy Dubois, Nellie Gamble, Bessie Grooms, and Estelle Leonard, came together at DePauw University in Indiana on October 15, 1885 to create the first musical sorority.
