Alpha Omicron Pi
Phi Chi Chapter was founded at UChicago in 1985.
Its official color is cardinal, its jewel is the ruby, and its unofficial mascot is the panda because the panda has no natural enemies.
The values on which AOII was founded help lead us in the decisions we make and the behaviors we exhibit in everyday. We are inspired to promote the values of simplicity, integrity, circumspection, tolerance, generosity, personal dignity, and love. Our lives are living symbols of these values that we hold in common. They enable us to go with character and confidence into the world around us, knowing AOII is ours, offering friendships and opportunities throughout our lifetime. There are three key components that AOII uses to communicate our purpose: The Object of the Fraternity, our Mission Statement, and AOII's Vision Statement. Although each individually unique, the three components work together to guide and direct our ever-expanding membership and leaders.
Eta Zeta Chapter was founded at UChicago in 2001. Its official colors are bronze, blue, and pink, its flower is the cream-colored rose, and its symbol is the anchor, which stands for hope.
Membership in Delta Gamma brings with it countless memories and experiences which shapes its members for years to come.
Consistent with our Founders' thoughts in 1873, our primary purpose is to create an environment for our members in which lasting friendships and our vows of sisterhood emanate all aspects of our Fraternity. We encourage an atmosphere which will foster high ideals of friendship among college women, promote their educational and cultural interests, create in them a true sense of social responsibility and develop in them high qualities of character. Delta Gamma is more than just a collegiate experience; it is a lifetime of commitment, support and opportunity awaiting you.

PI Beta Phi
The Illinois Kappa chapter of Pi Beta Phi was founded at UChicago in 2013. The fraternity colors are wine and silver blue, the flower is the wine carnation, and the symbol is the arrow.
Pi Beta Phi’s twelve founders formed the first secret society for women patterned after men’s Greek letter organizations in 1867 at a time when only five state universities admitted women. These courageous women set the stage for a thriving organization that continues to enrich the lives of many during their collegiate years and beyond. Throughout its history, Pi Beta Phi has helped young women develop meaningful relationships with others while reaching their personal potential. These relationships help sisters adapt to college life by providing a sense of belonging, mutual support and guidance. Pi Beta Phi Fraternity for Women distinguishes itself in the Greek world by leading the way as one of the founding members of the National Panhellenic Conference.
....the close-knit community of sisters. I love having an amazing group of people who support me and are there for me every step of the way, no matter where I go. Experiencing college with my sisters by my side has made it all the more worthwhile.
--Melanie W, second year
...the essence of all the wisdom of the ages, distilled into a single word. You cannot see sisterhood, neither can you hear it nor taste it. But you can feel it a hundred times a day. It is a pat on the back, a smile of encouragement. It's someone to share with, to celebrate your achievements.
