Chapter History

Theta Omega chapter of Alpha Omicron Pi was established at Northern Arizona University on November 23, 1963. 

Theta Omega was originally a local social sorority at NAU. As Alpha Omicron Pi was looking to branch out into the west, they took note of Theta Omega Sorority as it held various values and beliefs similar to the ritual and beliefs of AOII. Theta Omega chapter of Alpha Omicron Pi was installed with 25 charter members in 1963 and took the chapter title Theta Omega to mean Sacrifice and Service.

Since then, Theta Omega has grown and excelled at NAU through campus involvement, academics, and philanthropy. Current members are involved with recognized student organizations such as professional societies, student government, clubs, and mentorship programs. To learn more about current member involvement, see the Campus Involvement page.

Theta Omega has garnered numerous awards and accolades. We have won the Philos Award, AOII's highest recognition for outstanding philanthropy involvement, two Distinguished Service Awards, given to only ten chapters every two years, and numerous awards for academic and recruitment excellence. In 2019, Theta Omega was awarded Order of Omega's highest accolade, Chapter of the Year.

We celebrated our 50th anniversary in 2013 with a weekend of activities and speakers for the 150+ alumnae who attended. And our 60th anniversary is only one year away!

AOII values character, dignity, scholarship, and college loyalty and invites women who exhibit these values to join. Our chapter is full of women who are scholars, campus leaders, and hard workers, who always strive to bring credit to the Fraternity.
