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.
While 2020 may not have been the year many imagined, it was full of opportunities for reflection, growth, and achievements for the women of Alpha Phi. After an abrupt end to the Spring semester, we came into the second half of the year with intentions of making the most of the remaining year.
This summer we had three sisters attend our virtual Leadership Academy where we brought home Excellence in Campus and Community Involvement, Excellence in Communications, Excellence in Membership Experience, Excellence in Membership Recruitment, Excellence in Rituals, Excellence Collegiate Philos, and Excellence in Academic Achievement. Our Sister Maime Hertel was also awarded a Collegiate Women in Leadership Award, an award given out to onlytwelve exceptional AOII’s nationally.
This fall we had the honor of initiating 15 young women and are continuing our recruitment efforts through this spring. In October we held our 24th annual Run for the Roses 5k, although this year it was held virtually to allow for the health and safety of our participants. Despite it looking a little different than years past, we were able to raise over $3,000 to support the research efforts of the Arthritis Foundation. We finished off the year earning the highest Active and New Member GPA of all of Montana State University Sororities.
Despite the pandemic, the sisters in the Alpha Phi chapter completed 1,790 community service hours, with many of those directly benefiting the Bozeman community. Nearly 100 local organizations were served by the Alpha Phi sisters this past year, including the Heart of the Valley Animal shelter, VOICE Center, Eagle Mount, CAP Mentoring, and campus food bank, Bounty of the Bridgers. Our members also continue to lead MSU’s community with 100% of our members involved with an organization, community service project, job, or club on campus. We have multiple members who are orientation leaders, Advocats, CAP Mentors, VOICE Center advocates and women involved in ASMSU, the on campus student government.
We are so thrilled with our accomplishments over this past year, and we cannot wait to see what 2021 has to bring! We are looking forward to meeting all the amazing women who will go through recruitment and we cannot wait to welcome new members into our sisterhood! Please feel free to reach out with any questions.
