Alpha Omicron Pi (Women's) Fraternity
About Alpha Omicron Pi
Alpha Omicron Pi (ΑΟΠ) is an international women's fraternity that promotes friendship for a lifetime, inspires academic excellence and lifelong learning, and develops leadership skills through service to the Fraternity and community. Today, Alpha Omicron Pi has 198 collegiate chapters and 320 alumnae chapters in Canada and the United States.
Alpha Omicron Pi is not just a strong support system through our college days, but it is a community that will be here with us throughout our lives. Here at Delta Sigma we strive to develop ourselves as intellectually competent college students, influential leaders, and valued members of the community. We love to support each other and watch each other grow, whether it be listening to a sisters beautifully sing the national anthem for a basketball game, watching a sister perform in a school theatrical production, or cheering on our intramural sports team as they take on their toughest competitor.
As members of Alpha Omicron Pi, we hold ourselves to high standards and are proud of everything we have accomplished. Though we do enjoy keeping ourselves busily immersed with engaging events, academics are our number one priority and we are proud to say we have found the balance between work and play!
On March 15, 2013, the Delta Sigma Chapter celebrated its 25th Anniversary of rechartering at San José State University!
