Sigma Alpha Omega® was formed as a Sister Sorority to Chi Alpha Omega Fraternity. Chi Alpha Omega was founded as a co-ed Christian fraternity in the spring of 1987 at East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina. The purpose of Chi Alpha Omega was to assemble Christian students in a Christ-centered brotherhood in order to enjoy Christian fellowship, service, accountability, and social activities.
In January 1998, the active brothers (both males and females) of the Beta Chapter of Chi Alpha Omega at North Carolina State University voted to form Sigma Alpha Omega® in hopes of benefiting both the fraternity and the sorority. Both groups committed to living according to the ideals of Christ and His Word, uplifting each other through fellowship and service, and bringing the love of Christ to North Carolina State University. Founding Sisters of Sigma Alpha Omega® at North Carolina State University are Michelle Bull, Kathryn Meyer, Kimberly Rogers, and Josie Watson.

The Alpha Theta chapter of Sigma Alpha Omega was founded April 27, 2013 at the University of Virginia by Audrey Baker, Christina Ju Lee, Taylor Legg, Ashlee Lester, Jennifer Moss, Trevalyn Pearlman, and Allison Wang. Ashlee Lester was elected as president and Trevalyn Pearlman was elected as candidate mentor. Claire McAuliffe, current Executive Director of the National Board of Trustees, Brittany Shifflett, current National Board Vice President, and Stephanie Dawkins, sister of the Gamma class at the Alpha Alpha chapter at James Madison University, initiated the Alpha Theta Founding Class. Members of the Founding Class wore the "Honors of Honor" and graduated from the University of Virginia in the spring of 2016.
After efforts to maintain membership at UVA, too many sisters graduated at once and the chapter quickly struggled to maintain its Active Status. In Spring 2020, the Alpha Theta Chapter inactivated.
We are looking to revive this chapter with the right group. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested!
