Letter from the President


Hey beautiful ladies, welcome to our sisterhood! During your time here, I hope you get the chance to see the true and undoubtedly fun sisterhood from the lovely women of Alpha Omicron Pi.

When I was a freshman going through recruitment, I had no idea what was waiting for me at Alpha O. I walked up the stairs to the house on 1541 S Street and I found my forever home.

The beauty and simplicity that goes with our flower, the jacqueminot rose, is the definition of my time here at AOII. A rose has many parts, starting from the roots and ending with the flower. Alpha Omicron Pi’s roots go deep, our chapter has been around since 1903. We have been building a sisterhood that is unbreakable and our traditions and values have been growing stronger and stronger as the roots grow year after year. Next is the stem, and that is the unbearing love and support that comes from the sisters here. The stem connects the flower to the roots and is the first thing that grows on a flower. The stem represents the sisters growing and shaping you. The stem has thorns attached to it which do not hurt, but help the flower, just as our sisters at Alpha Omicron Pi help one another. We protect each other from the stresses of college, the ups and downs of your new chapter in life, and the ladies here are all extraordinary women growing together and leaning on each other. Finally, there is the bud that grows into a beautiful flower. The future women of our chapter are the buds with so much potential and growth. After joining our chapter, the women here develop into beautiful flowers and use their experiences from AOII to take great strides in life. Just as a flower needs every single part to grow, the women here rely on each other to grow over their four years, and join our lifelong sisterhood.

Being apart of the rose, you get the opportunity to create those everlasting memories and stories. Here at Alpha Omicron Pi, you get to find your AOII family during Big Little reveal, 170 closets that you can make your own, and always having people to help you get ready for formals, philanthropies, and date nights. We are always up for movie nights, spa nights, and never afraid to be kids and build forts and ordering pizza.

Through the good times and the bad, Alpha Omicron Pi has always been there for me. The women here have helped me to achieve greatness and inspire ambition in every walk of life. Like a rose, I have grown throughout my three years here. I have found my forever friends and a place that I can always call home. I have strong women to protect me, and continue to help me grow and shape into the woman I am today.

I am beyond blessed to live a life where I get to be around my best friends. The women here are involved on and off campus, and inspire me every day to be the best that I can be. We will love you unconditionally, make you laugh so hard it should count as an ab workout, and your sisters will soon understand you better than anyone else.

Alpha Omicron Pi is home on campus for so many women, and we look forward to welcoming more new ones this upcoming year. Through it all, AOII is a place of comfort, joy, and laughter. There is never a dull moment for our members here at Alpha Omicron Pi!
