In February 2002, the Student Government Association of Missouri State University approved Xi Omicron Iota's constitution, recognizing us as a Greek chapter on the Missouri State campus. The first recruitment was held March 2002, and had an overwhelming result. The first new-member class was composed of 22 women, ranging from freshmen to seniors. 

The campus community was extremely supportive of the decision to add a local sorority to Greek life on campus.

​Xi Omicron Iota was founded on the ideals of loyalty, sisterhood, and friendship. Our five founding mothers, Samantha Brown, Tracy Dailey, Brandei Harris, Helen Herschel, and LeAnn ODell, wanted the opportunity to offer the benefits of a sorority without live-in house requirements or the fees associated with a national office.

With the help of Assistant Director to Greek life, Marissa LeClaire, and Assistant Director to Student Activities, Christa Coffey, Xi Omicron Iota was formed.

Today, Xi Omicron Iota has more than 200 alumnae members and around 90 active members.
