A Letter From the President of the Theta Chapter:
Welcome to the Theta Chapter of Alpha Omega Epsilon at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign!
On behalf of the sisters of the Theta Chapter, I would like to welcome you to our website. Here you can access information about our history, ideals & objectives, events, and of course our sisters. All of us come from diverse backgrounds and unite to make up the Theta Chapter of Alpha Omega Epsilon.
In 1999, the Theta Chapter at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign was founded. 18 years later we have grown exponentially, but our ideals and objectives remain the same. We are both a social and professional organization as members of Panhellenic Council and Engineering Council. This joint membership gives us many opportunities to grow socially, professionally, and academically. Alongside other engineering organizations, we participate in Engineering Open House, host resume workshops and reviews, attend etiquette dinners and many other events to foster professional development. Outside of classes, we hold exchanges with fraternities, host engineering barn dance, and plan our annual formal and semi-formal. Under philanthropy, we raise money for various organizations through events like a pancake dinner, and participating in 5k’s. We also have many opportunities for sisterhood bonding through events like apple picking at Curtis Apple Orchard, and craft making.
Our chapter strives to promote friendship, leadership, and professionalism for young women in engineering and technical sciences. Whether you’re looking for the opportunity to network with young professional women, meet your best friends, excel academically, or volunteer in our local community, Alpha Omega Epsilon has something to offer you.
My decision to join A.O.E. was the most influential decision of my college career. I have made my best friends, found an amazing career, and grown as a leader. I am honored to lead an exceptionally talented group of young women.
Our success and growth as a chapter is dependent on the remarkable young women we welcome every semester. We would love to have you join us during your undergraduate career at the University of Illinois. Please browse our website to learn more about what we have to offer and do not hesitate to contact us directly to learn more!
In Friendship, Leadership, and Professionalism,
Morgan Folino, Beta Theta
Theta Chapter President
