Being a sister of Alpha Omicron Pi means so much more than just the four years of college- AOII is for a lifetime. The time we spend together as sisters is time that we cherish. Whether through our sisterhood retreats, formal events or just hanging out together, our sisters are striving to grow in their bond together.
Every semester we take a sisterhood retreat to an exciting location to get away from the stresses of class and spend some quality time with one another. This getaway is a time for all sisters to spend quality time with one and other in a new atmosphere each semester.
Another aspect of our sisterhood is the Big/Little program. Every new member is paired with an older member to be her “Big Sister”. The Big/Little program is wonderful because it provides the younger member with a mentor to share guidance and advice in order to help her succeed. Our Big/Little program is about more than giving the new members a best friend to do anything with (though it sometimes works out that way!). This program helps create a sense of place for the new members and gives them someone they can look up to in all things.
