Letter from the President


On behalf of our chapter here at Montana State, welcome to Alpha Omicron Pi’s Alpha Phi Chapter! We are so happy you are here and we cannot wait to show you what our sisterhood is all about. Alpha Phi is home to 64 members who are full of ambition, love, dedication, and passion. Our motto is “Inspire Ambition”, which is a perfect representation of our sisters. From maintaining one of the highest Greek GPAs on campus, to having sisters apart of ASMSU (Student Government), Honor’s College, and Voice Center (just to name a few), our sisters truly inspire one another in every endeavor.

Alpha Omicron Pi was founded at Montana State University in 1917, making us the first sorority on campus. Over the past 100 years we have grown in character, dignity, scholarship, and college loyalty. We are a diverse group of women who come together to support our college, community, and one another.

While 2020 may not have been the year many of imagined, it was full of opportunities for reflection, growth, and achievements for the women of Alpha Phi. After an abrupt end to the Spring semester, we came into the second half of the year with intentions of making the most of the remaining year. This summer we had three sisters attend our virtual Leadership Academy where we brought home Excellence in Campus and Community Involvement, Excellence in Communications, Excellence in Membership Experience, Excellence in Membership Recruitment, Excellence in Rituals, Excellence Collegiate Philos, and Excellence in Academic Achievement. Our Sister Maime Hertel was also awarded a Collegiate Women in Leadership Award, an award given out to only twelve exceptional AOII’s nationally. This fall we had the honor of initiating 15 young women and are continuing our recruitment efforts through this spring. In October we held our 24th annual Run for the Roses 5k, although this year it was held virtually to allow for the health and safety of our participants. Despite it looking a little different than years past, we were able to raise over $3,000 to support the research efforts of the Arthritis Foundation. We finished off the year earning the highest Active and New Member GPA of all of Montana State University Sororities.

AOII has done more for me that I could have ever imagined. This chapter has brought me my closest confidants, my fellow classmates, my adventure buddies, my future bridesmaids, and my forever sisters. These women have pushed me to step out of my comfort zone in numerous ways and encouraged me to be apart of things I normally wouldn’t do. Joining AOII has truly been one of the best decisions i have ever made and I will be forever grateful for what it has given me. I encourage you to explore our website and learn more about our sisterhood. If you are considering going through recruitment, I encourage you to give it a try! I know it has changed my life for the better. Thank you for taking time to visit us! Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions.
