(AOII) will become the newest sorority at Troy University in fall 2017.
AOII will participate in fall recruitment, but will drop out before Bid Day.
According to extension committee members, AOPi will be seeking upperclassmen to fill the needed leadership positions for its first year.
According to Alpha Omicron Pi’s website, service, scholarship and leadership are the organization’s main values.
“Alpha Omicron Pi’s greatest strength is our members,” it said. “Unique as individuals, yet bound together by the common bond of friendship.”
“AOIIs exhibit their commitment to be servant leaders as they participate in a project that raises funds for AOII’s philanthropy, arthritis, and partnership with the Arthritis Foundation,” the website said.
“Troy University’s Greek System is one of our most important assets,” said Dr. Jack Hawkins Jr., chancellor. “Greeks not only make up a significant percentage of our campus leaders, but they make important contributions to the community through their philanthropy and outreach. I believe that Alpha Omicron Pi’s values and mission make them a perfect fit for Troy’s Greek tradition, and I am proud to welcome them to the Trojan family.”
