Chi Omega Fraternity supports the Learning Commons

The University of Houston chapter of Chi Omega has pledged to make a $25,000 donation to the M.D. Anderson Library at the University of Houston.  The gift will be finalized this fall with a naming ceremony planned in the Library.  All actives and alumnae of the UH chapter will be invited, along with UH dignitaries and invited guests.

A collaborative learning space within the Learning Commons will be named in honor of the Chi Omega chapter at UH.  The Learning Commons is an area in the library where the newest and most robust hardware and software is concentrated in an incredibly accessible and visible part of the library. 

The Chi Omega Fraternity has been on the UH campus since Febuary 4, 1956.  Over many years, generations of UH Chi Omegas have been contributing to a fund that was intended to honor the University of Houston.  As the fund reached a meaningful amount and the university neared some significant historical milestones, the chapter decided it was time to make this gift, which supports one of our key purposes, sincere learning and creditable scholarship.
