In 2020, the Tau Beta Chapter of Chi Omega at Oklahoma State University celebrated an important milestone: 100 years of Chi Omega at Oklahoma State University. The chapter has now embarked on an ambitious campaign to support their vision for the future — Building for Our Next 100 Years at 310 S. Monroe. The primary goal of this campaign is to build a new Chapter house that will allow sisters to share in a comfortable, safe environment and maintain a competitive edge in the OSU Greek community.
Selser Schaefer Architects is proud to be a part of Chi O’s vision. 62% of our staff graduated from Oklahoma State University so it is especially meaningful when a project supports the campus community.
The design of Chi O’s new three-story home took many architectural cues from the existing Chi Omega house built in the 1920s. It was important to the building committee that the house has a residential scale. Pulling the roof line down and adding dormers to the third floor accomplished that goal. The exterior of lime-wash brick will give the impression that the house has “always” been there and adds a feminine quality. Throughout the home, elements from the original house are present and repurposed including stained glass window panels as a wall feature in the dining room and the original front doors as doors to the basement multipurpose room.
