Fraternity Friday: Life as a Sorority Alumna, Part III

Part III of this series on being a sorority alumna is with Lisa, an Alpha Omicron Pi alumna! A huge thank you goes out to Lisa for bringing an AOII perspective to this series, and for taking the time to answer my questions!!

Sorority Alumna3

1. What organisation and university are you from?
Alpha Omicron Pi, University of Maine

2. What year did you initiate into your organisation?
1982

3. Does your organisation offer specific alumnae programming?
Yes

4. Are you active in either an alumnae group of your organisation or the area Panhellenic? If yes, do you hold a position?
Yes, I am in the Philadelphia alumnae chapter, I do not hold a position.

5. Has your sorority experience contributed to where you are now- both personally and professionally? If yes, how so?
No, not really.

6. Do you interact with any undergraduate chapters of your organisation? Ie. Attend a reunion day or Initiation, alumnae days, recruitment, philanthropy events
Yes, I am an adviser at two different chapters, and have attended initiation and Founders’ Day events, assisted with recruitment and philanthropy events

7. If you could plan an alumnae event, anything at all, what would it be?
A Happy Hour in center city Philadelphia (actually, I have already done this)

Thank you again to Lisa for taking the time to do this! I think something that is really interesting is the different levels of involvement for alumnae; for some, they don’t care to do more than social gatherings while some are more than willing to advise collegiate chapters and devote a good deal of time to their organisation!

Until tomorrow,
The Historian!
