Beta Beta Chapter
The Beta Beta Chapter of Alpha Omega Epsilon was founded by 11 members on March 26th, 2011. This group originally formed in 2009 as an interest group of A.O.E. and began working towards becoming established as a colony. This goal was realized on March 6th of 2010 with the 6 founding members. Since then, the group started hosting different events on and off campus, such as the first recruitment period in September, many homework and academic nights, a few professional events, and many sisterhood events.
Alpha Omega Epsilon Sorority
Alpha Omega Epsilon is a professional and social sorority composed of females who have majored in engineering or technical sciences. The Sorority was founded on November 13, 1983, making A.O.E. the oldest engineering sorority. Initially founded to unite female engineers of all curricula, the Organization’s mission has since expanded to include females in both engineering and technical sciences. The Sorority’s mission, ideals, and objectives have spread to other campuses, and as a result, there are now 24 active chapters.
The Sisters of Alpha Omega Epsilon promote ideals and objectives that hope to further the advancement of female engineers and technical scientists, while at the same time developing bonds of lifelong friendships. A.O.E. strives for scholarship and academic achievement. The sisters create a friendly, warm atmosphere where integrity, character, and self-confidence can flourish. The Sorority hopes to enlighten female engineers and technical scientists to the career opportunities available to them. Alpha Omega Epsilon encourages ties with out Greek and Engineering Organizations, fosters leadership at the Chapter and International level, and provides networking opportunities for its members. As a young Organization, A.O.E. allows each member to play a significant part in realizing the Sorority’s future goals.
