Welcome to the Omicron Mu Chapter of Chi Omega!
Hello everyone! I would like to warmly welcome you to the Omicron Mu chapter of the Chi Omega Fraternity. My name is Mia von Knorring and I am honored to serve as the Chapter President for 2019. My journey in Chi Omega began back in Fall 2016 when I went through recruitment as a first year at Cal Poly. Ever since then Chi Omega constantly helps me foster such a wide variety of skills and connections. These past years have been some of the best, most challenging, most transforming years of my life and I owe so much of my growth to this beloved organization. Chi Omega has given me endless memories, incredible opportunities, and supportive sisters whom I consider family for a lifetime.
Our Fraternity was founded based on six purposes: friendship, high standards of personnel, scholarship, participation in campus activities, career and personal development, and community service. As Chi Omega women, we strive to excel in these aspects of our sisterhood on a daily basis. The foundation of our Chi Omega events is driven by these purposes, which allow us to give meaning to the activities we do together. As sisters, we love doing a wide variety of activities together, such as getting $2 sushi rolls every Tuesday, attending movie premieres, lounging around our house in our pajamas, or dressing up for our themed socials.
I am incredibly proud of the impact Chi Omega has made on both Cal Poly and the San Luis Obispo Community. In 2012 and 2013 we received the award for Sorority of the Year from Cal Poly, along with other awards such as: ASI Independent Student Organization of the Year, Best Contribution to Cal Poly, Outstanding Philanthropy, and so many more. In 2014 we were honored to receive a Chapter of Excellence Award from our National Organization. Since our founding at Cal Poly in 2008, we have helped grant 42 wishes for children with life threatening illnesses through our partnership with the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Chi Omega is so much more than an organization to be involved in for four years. As we say, “Chi Omega is not just 4 years, but for life”. We are an incredibly close-knit group of women who love each other unconditionally.
hese life-long friendships have changed our college experience for the better, and I would not trade it for the world. I am so proud to lead such a unique and genuine group of women, and I could not be more thankful for the lasting impact they have made on my life.
It was no accident that I found my home in Chi Omega. I am a Chi Omega on purpose, with purpose. Chi Omega is simply indescribable. I encourage you to explore our website as a small window into all that Chi Omega has to offer.
