Letter from the President


Alpha Omicron Pi means, more than anything else, LOVE. I came into the Chapter in a rough time in my life; I had little-to-no true friends, was in a new social environment, and had terrible social anxieties. I felt as though I was alone and would never find the life-long friendships everyone around me seemed to have. Although both my mother and my older sister had both joined a sorority during their collegiate years, formal recruitment was not something I originally wanted to go through - I did not want to be another stereotypical blonde sorority girl. Little did I know, the Chapter would break through these stereotypes I had originally worried about, teaching me that sororities are so much more than what I once believed. ??I signed up the day of recruitment, deciding I would keep an open mind toward the house I would choose, or if I would join at all. Alpha Omicron Pi was the last house (out of the 7 Panhellenic sororities) I had visited that Friday evening. Up until this point, I lost most hope toward finding a “home away from home,” as my mother had told me about. To my surprise, this last house would become my home away from home. The women of this house welcomed me with open arms and an open mind, making my anxieties fade and my lips turn into a smile. From this first encounter, my heart was set on AOII, and will be for life.

As an active member, I wish to continue to maintain our Chapter’s welcomeness and friendliness, always trying to give the same love to potential new members, and other Panhellenic community members, that I had received when I walked through the Chapter’s doors. I have learnt that Alpha Omicron Pi gives love and does not expect anything in return - as we should as individuals. I’ve learnt to let my guard down, to let myself be vulnerable and to let others in. I’ve learnt to be true to both myself and others, and allow myself to keep an open-mind in all realms of my University Career. ?

Throughout my time in the Chapter, I have had the opportunity to create these life-long true friendships I had always wished to have. I met strong, confident, unique women who strive for excellence and inspire ambition; women who push me to do my best and exceed the expectations. Not only by holding positions within the Chapter, but also by being charitable and going outside of my comfort zone within and outside of the Toronto community.

?The Beta Tau Chapter of Alpha Omicron Pi has taught me love. It has helped me become a stronger, more independent, and more well-rounded individual. More than this, it has become my safe haven - somewhere I can truly feel at home, let myself be vulnerable and, most importantly, be myself.

Alpha Omicron Pi is so much more than just the opportunities but also creating a group of strong, diverse women who are lifelong friends. These are women who will cheer you up, provide guidance, be there when you need a friend, and push you to improve and to be determined. I would not be the person that I am if I hadn’t met some of the incredible and inspiring women that I have who have taught me so much about patience, dedication, and love. Above all, in Alpha Omicron Pi, We seek ambitious women, and we are ambitious women hoping to, through the support of each other, achieve and inspire. I am so honored and humbled to be able to witness so many girls I call my sisters become community leaders and high achievers.



My sisters and I appreciate the time you took to visit our website and hope it provides insight as to why we have chosen to be a part of Alpha Omicron Pi and our commitment for a lifetime.
