Welcome to the Website of Gamma Eta Omega Chapter
Servicing Baton Rouge, Louisiana since 1940
In 1908, a pioneering group of young women at Howard University established the first African American Sorority focused on sisterhood, scholarship, and service to all mankind. These young scholars envisioned a sisterhood with a strong character that would appeal to the highest and noblest aims in life. Our chapter, Gamma Eta Omega, shares in this vision of the founders by uniting women with like minds to carry on this ‘Service to All Mankind’ in the Baton Rouge community. Our pledge is to continue the outstanding service programs provided to the community for over 75 years. We have a strong and rich history filled with influential women who believe in making a difference in the lives of people. As our International President, Dorothy Buckhanan Wilson has charged us to ‘Launch New Dimensions of Service’, we provide service through the Sorority’s signature program, ASCEND℠ our chapter’s signature program, ‘Arts Camp for Kids’, and other programs designed to enrich the lives of those in the community we serve.
Through our website, we hope to give you a look at what we do as we look forward to serving the surrounding community for another 75 years. Feel free to leave us your comments or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
