Alpha Omicron Pi
The object of the Fraternity shall be to encourage a spirit of Fraternity and love among its members; to stand at all times for character, dignity, scholarship, and college loyalty; to strive for and support the best interest of the colleges and universities in which chapters are installed, and in no way to disregard, injure, or sacrifice those interests for the sake of prestige or advancement of the Fraternity or any of its chapters.
Our Nickname: AOII (A-O-Pi)
Our Tagline: Exceed the Expectation
Our Badge: The badge of Alpha Omicron Pi is composed of the three initial letters of the three words of our Motto, superimposed one upon the next in order, which gives the Fraternity its name.
Our Color: Alpha Omicron Pi has only one color, cardinal.
Our Jewel: Alpha Omicron Pi has only one jewel, the ruby. The occasional use of pearls or diamonds in special badges has no significance or special meaning.
Our Flower: The 19th Century French rose, General Jacqueminot, a deep red rose, was chosen as the flower of Alpha Omicron Pi because its color is the symbol of the central and essential virtue of the Fraternity.
Our Mascot: While not an official symbol, the Fraternity and our chapters consider the Panda to be AOII's mascot. The panda was chosen because panda’s have no natural enemies.
Alpha Omicron Pi was founded on a promise to serve not only one another but the greater community as well. This commitment reflects a philosophy of friendship, concern, and usefulness in the world. The promise to serve can be seen in the relationships within a collegiate or alumnae chapter as they work together to help a sister or as they contribute to the AOII Foundation to enable scholarships and aid to other members. In addition, AOIIs exhibit their commitment to be servant leaders as they participate in a project that raises funds for AOII’s philanthropy, Arthritis research and the American Juvenile Arthritis Organization.
