Our seven founding fathers felt a need in strengthening Pilipino unity by extinguishing the lines between regions, class levels, and language barriers through brotherhood. On February 20, 1995, this ideal brotherhood unifying Pilipino and non- Pilipino became a reality on the campus of the California State University at Fresno.
Chi Rho Omicron was established at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona on June 2, 2000. The Cal Poly Pomona chapter is the first Southern California chapter in Chi Rho Omicrons history. The Pomona chapter as well as our other chapters across the state of California reach out to the community as a way of spreading Pilipino awareness and showing support for the Pilipino community. By holding out our hands to the public, we aim to become a unique resource as well as an organization that practices its beliefs.
We have eight chapters located in California:
Alpha Chapter – California State University, Fresno
Beta Chapter – San Francisco State University
Gamma Chapter – California State University, East Bay
Delta Chapter – University of San Francisco
Epsilon Chapter – California State University, Sacramento
Zeta Chapter – University of California, Davis
Eta Chapter – California State Polytechnic University, Pomona
Theta Chapter – San Diego State University
WE ARE CHI RHO OMICRON!!! THE PURPOSE OF OUR FRATERNITY IS TO EDUCATE THE PEOPLE ABOUT PILIPINO CULTURE. WE PRIDE OURSELVES IN OUR BROTHERHOOD AND OUR SERVICE TO THE PILIPINO COMMUNITY. .
