Kiva Lending Team: Chi Omega
We loan because...
As members of one of the most
significant organizations for women,
Chi Omega women are active
participants – not only on our
campuses, but also in our communities. Chi Omega women worldwide engage in community service. Helping and serving those around us reflects one of our highest ideals.
As the Ladies of Chi Omega, we represent and live by the words of our symphony:
"To live constantly above snobbery of word or deed; to place scholarship before social obligations and character before appearances; to be, in the best sense, democratic rather than 'exclusive', and lovable rather than 'popular'; to work earnestly, to speak kindly, to act sincerely, to choose thoughtfully that course which occasion and conscience demand; to be womanly always; to be discouraged never; in a word, to be loyal under any and all circumstances to my Fraternity and her highest teachings and to have her welfare ever at heart that she may be a symphony of high purpose and helpfulness in which there is no discordant note."
