Sisterhood Spotlight!


We wish everyone the best of luck during recruitment! Can’t wait to meet everyone! :)

Hi, my name is Elizabeth Henley and I’m part of the Fall ’13 pledge class! My major is Retail and Consumer Science because I love fashion. I wanted to go Chi O because of the warm, welcome they gave me from the moment I walked in, with open arms! My favorite Chi O memory is my new member retreat. I loved getting to know all of my sisters; it was so exciting and fun. One fun fact about me is that my big was the first and last person I talked to during recruitment. 

I hope all of y’all going through recruitment have the time of yours lives. You’re about to start the best weekend of the rest of your life!

Sisterhood Spotlight!



Our energetic sister, Mercedes, who always has our sisters back and dances everywhere she goes! 

Hi! My name is Mercedes McGinnis and I am a Junior here at UH. My major is education and I will be teaching 4th-8th grade Science after I graduate in December 2015. I was a member of the Cougar Dolls Dance Team for two years and during one of those years I was the Social President. During the Fall of 2013, I made the bold choice to go Greek. I knew that Chi Omega was my home because when I looked around the room I saw women that I aspired to be like. Joining Chi Omega has changed my life in so many more ways than I ever expected. I remember going through recruitment with a thousand questions and the constant feeling of butterflies in my stomach but when I walked into Chi O, all of those things flew out the window. I didn’t need to question Chi Omega; I knew that Chi O was where I was meant to be. 

Sisterhood Spotlight!

Our beautiful sister, Rachel Sloan, who is always bubbly and happy no matter what!

My name is Rachel Sloan and I am a proud member of the Fall ’13 pledge class! I am a sophomore, Public Relations major and work for The Cougar, student newspaper, as well as being a member of the honors college here at UH. My all time favorite memory is of our sisterhood retreat this year. In my past I couldn’t have imagined 40 women in a room without someone fighting, but in Chi Omega I have learned that as long as everyone is working for one goal and cares for each other, any event can be one that is just fun! I had an amazing time getting to know my sisters better and working alongside them the whole weekend. It’s women like these that inspire me everyday to be better than I was yesterday.
