Sophomore Lys Metina-Belknap is spending the summer traveling across France with her best friend! Her family is French and has spent a lot of time traveling across France with her family, but this will be her first time exploring the country without them. She is looking forward to immersing herself in the culture, catching up with her extended family, and showing her best friend around France. They will be spending the majority of their time in Paris and Marseille. Ciao, Lys!

Riley Watkins

Meet Riley Watkins, a junior from Raleigh, NC who is our current president! When asked why she chose Chi Omega, Riley responded: “I chose XO because I wanted to make friends who would support me unconditionally and also push me to become a better person and community member! I also have a special place in my heart for the Make A Wish foundation and wanted to give back to a community that has given so much to me.” Riley is being granted her wish from Make A Wish this summer as she travels to Maui, Hawaii! We are so excited to hear about all the sun, sights, and yummy eats from our foodie Pres!

London, England

London School of Economics

Many of our sisters are enjoying studying abroad this summer, but there is a particularly large concentration of Chi Os studying at London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). LSE is a top ranked university that provides fall, spring, and summer term classes. We know that our girls - including sophomores Caroline Kaynor, Eleanor Williams, and Catie Chubb - will have a blast furthering their studies, traveling, and soaking up their time abroad. We can't wait to hear about all of their adventures and discoveries both in and out of the classroom.
