Friendship & Sisterhood
"Today’s Friends, Tomorrow’s Leaders, Forever in Service"
Sisterhood is an important aspect of any sorority and the Alpha Alpha chapter is no exception. Within our chapter of Omega Phi Alpha, sisterhood is regarded as loving, encouraging, and empowering one another. Omega Phi Alpha sisters form strong bonds of sisterhood that often begin in their first semester as a Potential New Member (PNM) and continue throughout the rest of their lives.
Service is the area in which much of our bonding takes place. Through working together to help others in our community and worldwide, we build bonds that would not otherwise exist on the level that they do. With roughly 60 active sisters within the Alpha Alpha chapter, each individual member is unique and Omega Phi Alpha strives to emphasize the qualities that define each member. Omega Phi Alpha does not discriminate based on race, ethnicity, age, ability, sexual orientation or gender and we are committed to promoting tolerance in our sisterhood. Many sisters have taught our chapter skills in cooking, exercise, professional workplace skills, and other important life skills. Coming together to learn a skill from a fellow sister strengthens the bond between one another as they are introduced to a side of the sister they might not have been aware of. Becoming a sister ensures that you will find other like-minded individuals who are passionate about the same things that you are, especially service! If you don't want to find someone who is like-minded as you are, there is a large diversity so you'll be able to find a friend no matter what!
Within the Alpha Alpha chapter of Omega Phi Alpha, sisterhood is maintained by semester retreats that prioritize bonding activities with a mix of fun while maintaining the important aspect of growth through bonding within the sorority. In addition to the retreats, our current Sisterhood Director plans monthly outings that include hiking, picnics, bowling, and laser tag events. Not only are the Alpha Alpha girls sisters, but we are also friends and take pride in the title.
