Alpha Omicron Pi
Leadership, academic excellence, involvement, and genuine friendships make the Lambda Sigma chapter of Alpha Omicron Pi unique. Four women who exemplified these same qualities founded Alpha Omicron Pi on January 2, 1897.
The women of AOII are involved in nearly every campus organization, including Arch Society,Panhellenic Exec, SGA, Order of Omega, Tate Society and Blue Key. Several women have been named Foundation Fellows and many others receive academic scholarships. In 2008 and 2011, AOII women were elected Homecoming Queen. Members also consider athletics important and are involved in UGA Cheerleading,Track & Field, Dance Dawgs, Lacrosse and the Georgettes. Many women also represent the sorority on intramural teams.
Philanthropy activities such as ugaMIRACLE, Relay for Life and Alternative Spring Break are all important organizations that AOII supports. AOII has multiple members on Executive council boards for ugaMIRACLE, UGA H.E.R.O.S, Relay for Life, Roteract, and Volunteer UGA. Members take time to get involved with the community by volunteering at Athens Regional Hospital, Athens YMCA, Habitat for Humanity and mentoring at local schools.
Lambda Sigma supports its national philanthropy, Arthritis Research, by holding an annual 5K run, "Run for the Roses." This event raising more than $10,000 as well as having a "Go Blue" week to support the Arthritis Foundation. Sisters of AOII also created a foundation to raise money in memory of a very special sister.
As a result of AOII's achievements and focus on tradition and excellence throughout the year, the Lambda Sigma chapter was recognized as the top AOII chapter internationally in 2001. We welcome you to the University of Georgia, hope you enjoy Recruitment, and can't wait to share our friendship and tradition with you! Go Dawgs!
