Alpha Omega Epsilon is a professional and social sorority composed of female students and alumnae in the field of engineering and technical sciences. The sorority was founded on November 13, 1983, and four months later, on March 22, 1984, became a recognized organization on the Marquette University Campus in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The idea of uniting female engineers of all curricula spread to other campuses. As a result, we have twenty-two chapters.
The Sisters of Alpha Omega Epsilon promote ideals and objectives that hope to further the advancement of female engineers and scientists, while at the same time developing bonds of lifelong friendships. Alpha Omega Epsilon strives for scholarship and academic achievement. The sisters create a friendly, warm atmosphere where integrity, character, and self-confidence can foster. The sorority hopes to enlighten female engineers to the career opportunities available. Alpha Omega Epsilon encourages ties with other Greek Organizations, leads to the discovery of additional extracurricular activities, and aids in pursuing contacts with engineers in industry.
The sisters of Alpha Omega Epsilon are proud of the principles the organization stands for, and always welcomes young women who can share in the dreams and reap the benefits that Alpha Omega Epsilon has to offer. Alpha Omega Epsilon, as a young organization, allows each member to play a significant part in realizing the group's future goals.
