About Alpha Omicron Pi

Alpha Omicron Pi is an international sisterhood founded in 1897 by four young women at Barnard College, now part of Columbia University. Our founders valued lifelong friendship, academic excellence and serving others, and AOII’s all across the US and Canada are committed to living those same values today. Everyone in our chapter comes from different backgrounds with different experiences and interests but we are all bound together by our shared values. Currently there are 205 AOII collegiate chapters and over 165,000 initiated members. 

Academics are our first priority and our chapter provides educational development to help our members excel. AOII offers plenty of leadership opportunities where members can exhibit their creativity while learning new skills. We support AOII’s philanthropy, arthritis research, by holding our annual Mr & Ms Greek pageant, raising almost $100,000 since 1988. AOII has also won Sorority of the Year 4 of the last 6 years!

AOII provides an opportunity to have fun and enjoy everything SJSU has to offer. Sharing good times and sisterhood are at the heart of all our activities. From laughing with each other to hanging out at the house to making recruitment decorations, AOII is meant to be fun! Together we are making lifelong memories and loving the times spent with the best of friends, our AOII sisters.
