Commitment to
Scholarship

AOII encourages all members to excel academically and has many programs designed to assist women in achieving their academic goals. Expectations are high but the support provided by scholarship programs, academic development officer resources, and fellow members makes success attainable.

Letter from the President


Welcome to the Beta Kappa chapter of Alpha Omicron Pi at the University of British Columbia. I hope that visiting our website has given you a better idea of who we are and what we strive to be. Our chapter is proud to have been recolonized in 2011 and has grown in size and membership ever since. As members of UBC’s Greek community, we strive for building strong character and dignity, scholarship, and college loyalty. Our passion is to make a positive impact on the world around us.

As sisters, we are bound by ties of friendship. You can find our sisters all over campus, from studying in the library, working part-time, catching up at coffee shops, to playing sports with UBC rec. Many of our sisters are involved in leadership activities ranging from local, national and international organizations.

Being the Chapter President this year was a challenging yet rewarding experience, especially with the unexpected transition to online programming and chapter operation in this time of uncertainty.

Looking back, when I was initiated into AOII in my first year, I remember being amazed by how involved my sisters were within AOII, Panhellenic, and the campus community. When I saw these sisters accomplishing so much and being passionate about their leadership and service, I was really inspired. The supportive encouragement from the sisters in AOII further motivated me to become a leader who can be a role model and “Inspire Ambition” in others. Being a member of AOII has motivated me to become an engaged member of my local community at UBC and beyond.

This year, our chapter was able to have enriched chapter programming and sisterhood filled with love and care, despite the online environment. I am so proud of everyone in the chapter, especially the Leader’s Council and Cabinet officers for bringing their dedication and being so adaptive. I loved seeing how our sisters felt a genuine connection to each other, supported each other through hard times, and recognized each other’s achievements.

Being the Chapter President has been such a memorable experience and growth opportunity for me so far and I hope that every sister feels the same way about being a member of our chapter.

Alpha love and mine,

Alisa Hashimoto
