Feather Our Nest

Feather Our Nest

Current Feather Our Nest Giving:  $85,105

Phase One and Two (all 2nd Floor Bedrooms) Goal:  $165,000

 

Tau Beta Chapter is reaching out to our alumnae, our active members, and their families for financial assistance to Feather Our Nest.

 

This 3-year capital campaign will provide for the renovation of 37 bedrooms. Because of the generosity of our donors listed below, Phase One, which included the renovation of 10 bedrooms, occurred during Summer 2014.  Phase Two renovations, which will include the renovation of the remaining 2nd floor bedrooms, will begin Summer 2015.

 

Naming opportunities are available!

For $7500, we will renovate a 2-girl room and name it according to your wishes.  (Due to the increase in the cost of materials, we have increased this from $7000.)

The 4- and 5-girl rooms are $10,000.

 

We encourage pledge classes, families, small towns, and alumnae groups to band together and fund a bedroom.

 

Donations of any size are appreciated and will be combined to "feather" a room.  All donors will be recognized on room plaques.

 

Please consider giving today!

House History

House History

The Tau Beta Chapter of Chi Omega was founded on the Campus of Oklahoma A&M on October 30, 1920. It was the fourth national women's fraternity to install a charter on the campus, following Kappa Delta, Pi Beta Phi, and Kappa Alpha Theta.

 

The Tau Beta house used to be a Masonic Lodge. Through the years, the house has undergone many changes and improvements. It continues to be one of the most beautiful and up-to-date Greek houses at Oklahoma State University.

 

Today, the 30,000+ square feet house is the home to 85 girls and one House Director.

 

We hope you will join the House Corporation in its efforts to keep the Chi Omega house attractive, livable, and a wonderful place to call home.

 

We thank you for your support!
