There are several ways to become a member of Alpha Omicron Pi. Most commonly, AOII seeks potential new members through a formal recruitment process on campuses where we have collegiate chapters. However, working within Panhellenic guidelines, chapters may also be allowed to recruit informally.

The addition of a collegiate chapter on a campus where one does not exist is called "extension" and evolves through a well-planned process involving the National Panhellenic Conference, the college or university, and AOII to help guarantee the success of the new chapter.

AOII also has an Alumna Initiate membership program to recruit new members who are no longer collegians. More specific information on how to become a member and how to recommend someone else for membership is available in this section.

New Member Program

AOII’s New Member Program, much like the educational mission of Alpha Omicron Pi, is centered on a promise. This mutual agreement between new members and AOII helps our organization to grow and flourish, all while ensuring the development and integrity of our members.

New member classes meet weekly to learn about AOII as they build their sisterhood. During these meetings, they will utilize the AOII membership education manual, The Promise, which provides information about AOII, our history, our policies and our principles. In addition to weekly meetings, a new member retreat is held to allow members to bond as a group through a fun day or overnight trip together.

On top of learning about AOII, new members are also able to participate in scheduled Greek Life events and support their fellow fraternity and sorority organizations’ philanthropic events.

The typical new member period lasts 6 to 8 weeks and is strategically planned to provide members with an exceptional new member experience. The culmination of this period includes AOII initiation preparation activities.

Recommend a New Member

A Membership Information Form (MIF) is our easy-to-use, electronic form that provides information on a Potential New Member (PNM) to a collegiate chapter for recruitment. All initiated members of AOII, in good standing, are encouraged to participate in this process that benefits both the chapter and the PNM. Collegiate members are allowed to submit MIFs for chapters other than their own.

University of South Alabama - Gamma Delta Recruitment

Hi Ladies! I am beyond thrilled for you to experience recruitment and begin one of the best adventures of your time here in college. Coming in, I was always interested in joining a sorority and becoming involved on campus but after joining into AOII, it has given me so much that I am thankful for. From countless memories and friendships, to volunteering, to just being a part of something so special, joining a sorority will give you multiple opportunities that are not available to just anyone. Being in a sorority is so much more than just the letters you wear, but it becomes a part of who you are and how you can grow in your college career. It is where you find your lifetime friends and the people you can count on in and beyond college. I cannot wait to meet you all during recruitment and I hope you find somewhere that exceeds your expectation as AOII did for me! Best of Luck, Jescie Roberts, Vice President of Membership Recruitment.
