Why should you join AOII? Alpha Omicron Pi's greatest strength is our members... unique as individuals, yet bound together by the common bond of friendship. Bound by these ties of friendship, AOII encourages each member to recognize what is unique in each of us, to develop our individual talents and to be proud of our differences. As represented by one of our symbols, the sheaf of wheat, we are made stronger by coming together as one.
Celebrating our Sisterhood Our Founders considered each new sister a founder in her own way, carrying on the traditions and friendships of AOII to the campus and community around her. AOII provides an opportunity to have fun and enhances the collegiate experience for our members. Membership within AOII is worth celebrating!
Opportunities to Grow AOII has a positive affect on sisters' lives. Whether a member chooses to serve on a committee or run for chapter office, there are unlimited ways to be involved in AOII. We offer opportunities that fit every personal interest. Our educational programs inspire leadership skills and personal development, increasing our members self-confidence and a stronger bond of sisterhood.
Giving Back to our Communities One of the founding principles of AOII is to be of service to others - to bring to the world around us a spirit of love, not for self-glory, but as an opportunity to give something back to our communities. As our rose symbolizes, our sisterhood is a gift to be shared. AOII chapters and members choose to organize and participate in fundraising and hands-on service events.
Friendship for a Lifetime From the moment members are initiated and first wear our AOII Badge, we learn that our sisterhood in AOII lasts a lifetime. Moving away from the comfort zone of a campus and taking a job in a new city can be exciting and challenging for many college graduates. It is comforting to know that there is an AOII alumnae chapter offering friendship and fun in a new community.
Always to Cherish The experiences within AOII are a precious and valuable gift. In AOII, our members have a place to be themselves, a place to find a friend and a place to call home for the rest of their lives. Alpha Omicron Pi supports and encourages our members by sharing their hopes, joys and even disappointments. Our desire is to help them become the best they can be - personally, professionally and philanthropically.
