Alpha Omicron Pi
Alpha Omicron Pi's greatest strength is our members... unique as individuals, yet bound together by the common bond of friendship. Since 1897, over 126,000 women have found fun and friendship in the sisterhood of AOII. Our members have a place to call home, a place to find a friend, and a place to be themselves. We also support our members through programming and leadership development. Our desire is to help our members become the best they can be - personally, professionally and philanthropically.
Thanks to the vision of many remarkable women, AOII enjoyed tremendous success during our first 100 years. Alpha Omicron Pi has chartered 178 collegiate chapters, and over 320 alumnae chapters located throughout the United States and Canada. Our members enjoy friendship in AOII for a lifetime. As we boldly focus on our second century, we envision a future even more glorious than our past.
The Alpha Phi Chapter of Alpha Omicron Pi is looking to kick off another wonderful year!
Our chapter is carrying over many accomplishments from this past spring. At our annual Montana State University Fraternity and Sorority Life Banquet awards ceremony, we won Chapter of the Year, as well as the Campus Involvement, Recruitment Excellence, and New Member Academic awards. At our International AOII Convention this summer, we were voted on of twelve Chapters of Excellence taking home awards for Excellence in Ritual, Risk Management, and Membership Recruitment. We also received Honorable Mentions in Community Service and Campus Involvement.
Our Spring Philanthropy event, Kick Out Arthritis, was a hug hit, raising nearly $400 for the Arthritis Foundation. We held our Founder's Day celebration in February, hosting many of our alumnae members and sharing special memories on our chapter's 98th anniversary. Our Public Relations dinner was also a success; we enjoyed sharing all that AOII has accomplished with members of the MSU and Bozeman community.
Throughout the year, our chapter members stay very involved in organizations such as ASMSU Senate, Advocats tutoring, CAP Mentoring, and the VOICE Center. As a chapter, we completed over 2,311 hours of community service last year and participated in Relay for Life, the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, Bowl for Kids Sake, and Can the Griz. Maintaining strong relationships with the other sororities and fraternities is important to us, and we supported these other chapters by attending their philanthropy events such as Alpha Gamma Delta's Trick or Treat for Change and Chi Omega's Swishes for Wishes. We also enjoyed other fun events such as pizza making with the men of Pi Kappa Alpha and an etiquette dinner with the men of Kappa Sigma.
We are looking forward to a wonderful week of recruitment and a great fall semester! Go Bobcats!
