About Tau Beta

This website is dedicated to the improvement and upkeep of the Chi Omega chapter house at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, Oklahoma.

 

Your donation will go directly to the Tau Beta House Corporation for the renovation, repair, maintenance, and beautification of the Chi Omega house, land, parking lots, and furnishings.

 

We invite you to take a house tour, check on house projects, catch up on news and events, and much more. Enjoy!

Feather Our Nest

Feather Our Nest

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

 

With your help, all of the bedrooms will be renovated beginning Summer 2014.

 

Naming opportunities are available!

For $7000, we will renovate a 2-girl room and name it according to your wishes.

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.

 

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!
