Alpha Omicron Pi would like to first and foremost extend our warmest welcome back to the students of Monmouth University!! Kicking off our 2nd full year here on campus, we are very much looking forward to returning to MU for a busy and fulfilling semester!
AOII really encourages all students at MU to immerse themselves into all that our school has to offer, because finding a home away from home while in college is not only an amazing and fun experience, it is essential to being able to flourish and grow as we grow up and enter the real world. The places and people you find and call home can and will create a life changing college experience!
Since our colonization in April of 2013, Alpha Omicron Pi has done just that. It has given our members the privilege to learn and grow as individuals and has provided a true home away from home experience. It has been an incredibly fulfilling year and a half for each and every one of our sisters-and we would love to share a few reasons why.
Sisters of AOII have taken advantage of leadership opportunities offered here on campus and beyond with the love and support of their sisters always behind them. Our members can be seen at Monmouth guiding freshman through their transition to college as New Student Orientation leaders, in the dorms as Resident Assistants, all over campus as MU Ambassadors, and throughout other campus organizations as members of the executive boards of MU clubs such as SAB, Student Government, Hawk TV & many more. We encourage all of our members to Exceed the Expectation, and we extend that to all students here at Monmouth as well. There is so much offered to students on campus (and even off campus) to help build leadership experience that will help you in the future. So jump right in, get involved, and make long lasting experiences!
In addition to our accomplishments as leaders in the community, our sisters are committed to the service of others. Our philanthropic efforts as an organization lie in part in our national philanthropy, Arthritis Research, for which we raised more than $2,000. We want all of you to take advantage of the volunteer opportunities out there because you really can make a big difference in the smallest of ways. Look out for our upcoming philanthropy events on campus this year to help you get involved!
The sisters of AOII are very grateful to be able to share a little bit about our experiences here at MU and what we as an organization have to offer, and we are so excited for this next year of opportunities to grow as individuals and as a chapter, and to finally kick things back into gear after a long and relaxing summer! We hope that all students and faculty take advantage of every opportunity that comes their way and make the best of the year to come!
And last, but certainly not least, GO HAWKS!!
Wishing everyone here at MU the best year yet,
Alpha Omicron Pi
