Chi Omega was founded on April 5, 1895, at the University of Arkansas, in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Each year, the Chi Omega Alumnae Association of Houston honors the anniversary of Chi Omega’s founding with Eleusinia. The celebration is usually held the first week of April in conjunction with Founder’s Day. During Eleusinia, we recognize 50, 60 and 70-year members and announce the scholarship winners. Members from the Psi Zeta chapter at the University of Houston celebrate with the alumnae and we announce the Chi Omega Alumnae Association of Houston Woman of the Year.  

This photo was taken at the April 10, 2022 celebration at Ousie’s Table.  Over 70 alumnae and collegiate members were in attendance!
