On Life in Big Yellow
Living in Chi Omega, there’s always something fun happening. Whether I need to laugh, cry or just rant, there’s someone a few steps away to help. I’ve never walked into Chi O without stopping to talk to at least least amazing people and having them make me laugh. Living in the house is a breath of fresh air- it’s like a break away from the hardships of classwork and school because there’s always someone to take your mind off of it.
What really struck me about living in the house is how much Chi O positively influenced me. Everyone, and I mean everyone, is so driven, motivated, and smart that it truly rubs off on me. Living in the house has been one of my most beneficial experiences and that being said, I know I’ll likely never live with 50 other people again, which makes it even more special. Our pledge class has become so close from living in the house and everyone adds so much to the experience.

Fondly nicknamed "Big Yellow", our home houses over 50 girls and is visited daily by our other members. Our modern-styled house is spacious and clean and always welcome to visitors and guests. Our front porch full of swings and chairs is a hotspot for homework and lunch dates. The manicured front lawn is always a spot for picnics and pets.
Our first and main floor warmly welcomes you in and includes two sitting rooms, a formal living room, informal living room, offices, and a cozy space for our house mother, Teresa Schlotterer. In the back, we have the kitchen, which is always stocked with snacks, and delicious and healthy food made by our chefs, Kip and Laurie.
Down below is our basement where we have our board room, chapter room, and study area where we have over 30 personal desks for our members to have a quiet area to study. On the second floor, we have over 20 rooms that house over 50 girls in single rooms, doubles, triples, and quadruples. We are proud to say that we can house an entire pledge class within our house and that year after year, we are able to bond and strengthen our sisterhood.
