On behalf of our chapter, welcome to Alpha Omicron Pi at DePaul University!
The Panhellenic community at DePaul is unlike any other, and I can say with full confidence that AOII plays a key role in what specifically sets it apart. When I went through recruitment two years ago, I was taken aback not only by the dedication and involvement of each woman within the chapter, but also by the fact that they were so incredibly poised and kind-hearted towards everyone they met throughout that involvement. I can proudly say as Delta Rho’s Chapter President, our women have continued this legacy of dedication and respect even two years later, and I am confident that they will continue to live this legacy out as our organization continues to grow. One of the many reasons Alpha Omicron Pi was founded was to promote love, friendship, and inclusion among sorority women. Our women uphold those values each and every day. They are the people you can call at any hour of the night; they are the friends you lean on when things get hard; they are the women you laugh so hard with that you begin to cry. We are each individually unique, but when we all come together, our organization is complete.
Alpha Omicron Pi is not just a sorority. It is a family within DePaul’s community of Panhellenic women. It is the home to so many of our girls and it has provided me 90 amazing sisters, a number of fierce role models, and my best friends for life. It is an amazing organization and I am forever grateful to be a part of it.
