The Psi Gamma Chapter of Chi Omega has a long and proud history on Mercer University's campus. Our chapter received its charter from Chi Omega National Headquarters on December 18, 1943. It was installed by Helen Gordon and had a Charter Class of 25 members. Psi Gamma has shown its continued appreciation to Mercer University through the contribution of many symbolic gifts, such as an engraved silver punch bowl in 1968 and an engraved stone in 1993 commemorating 50 years on Mercer's campus.
Throughout Chi Omega's long and proud history, its Six Purposes have guided the direction of every chapter and brought its members countless opportunities for personal growth and development. Those purposes are Friendship, High Standards of Personnel, Sincere Learning and Creditable Scholarship, Participation in Campus Activities, Career and Personal Development, and Community Service.
Chi Omega's Psi Gamma Chapter at Mercer University has excelled in upholding these standards and has earned recognition for their excellence in many areas, including raising the most money for various campus philanthropic events, continuing our chapter's scholastic achievements year after year, winning first place in Mercer's annual Homecoming competition in the fall of 2014, and continued recognition for the improvement of on-campus leadership. We believe in the heritage and values represented in the Greek Life communities on college campuses across the nation.
