The University’s Panhellenic Council has selected a new sorority to join the University of Minnesota greek community this fall.

Chi Omega accepted its invitation to join the University Tuesday after presenting their case to students, alumni and administrators over the weekend. Chi Omega competed with two other sororities, Phi Mu and Tri Delta, to win the invitation for this fall.

Chi Omega is the largest women’s fraternal organization in the world, according to its website, and was founded in 1895 at the University of Arkansas.

“I’m incredibly pleased,” said Matt Levine, program director for the Office for Fraternity and Sorority Life. “This was a hard decision to make.”
