As we approach our Chapter’s centennial celebration on March 23, 2019, Zeta Alpha Chapter of Chi Omega continues to provide an outstanding sorority experience on campus by exhibiting the Chi Omega Symphony in everything we do. Our house at 1770 Indianola Avenue has served as their home in Columbus for thousands of women over the past 65 years, but has begun to show signs of its age. In addition, the growth of the Chapter has resulted in Chapter meetings being held in a classroom on campus, the inability of having a sit-down meal for the entire Chapter, and lounge and living room space overflowing with members studying and spending time together. As alumnae, we are entrusted with the responsibility of ensuring that our Zeta Alpha home is a safe haven and provides the space for meaningful sisterhood experiences.
ZACO has determined that a newly built Chapter House is vital to the continued success of Chi Omega at Ohio State. After making visits to other new Chi Omega chapter houses and working with Acock Architects Associates in Columbus, the ZACO Building Committee has designed the following plans to ensure that Zeta Alpha’s Chapter facility is a modern home-away-from-home for current and future sisters.
Throughout this process, we have heard countless stories of lifetime friendships, fond memories, and funny stories from Zeta Alphas across generations. Being able to come together in our Chapter House was central to many of these positive experiences, whether it be for Monday night dinners, initiation, or getting ready for social events. We are asking for your help with donations; building this new home cannot happen without the support of generous alumnae like you.
