Chi Omega is one of the largest woman's organizations in the country taking pride in the principles listed above.  At Gettysburg, the Tau Delta chapter is a diverse group of women who are all active members of the college campus.  Collectively, we are involved in over 80 different extra-curriculars, clubs, and groups on campus - you can always find a Chi Omega involved in some kind of organization!  Our National philanthropy is the Make a Wish Foundation, and every year we sponsor the popular Mr. Fraternity contest.  Last November, we raised over $3000 for Make a Wish through this event. In addition to our national philanthropy we also support Survivors and The Growing Place - two local groups.  Tau Delta is known for our high ranks of scholarship.  For the past four years, we have been ranked in the top two of the highest sorority GPA.
