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 my sisters, I would like to welcome you to our website. Here, you can learn about
our history, our ideals and objectives, our events and of course, our sisters. We come from
different backgrounds and all walks of life and unite to make up the Theta Chapter of Alpha
In 1999, the Theta Chapter at the University of Illinois was founded. 17 years later, we have
grown significantly, but our ideals and objectives remain the same. As a social and professional
organization, A.O.E. is a part of Panhellenic Council and Engineering Council. This joint
membership gives us the opportunity to help our members grow socially, professionally, and
academically. Alongside other engineering organizations, we organize events such resume
workshops and etiquette dinners to foster professional development. Outside of classes, we
hold exchanges with fraternities, host a barn dance, and plan our annual formal. Under our
philanthropy chair, we raise money for various organizations through events like a broomball
tournament and a pancake dinner. We also have many opportunities for sisters to
bond through sisterhood events like a cookout in the spring and apple picking in the fall.
Our chapter strives to promote friendship, leadership, and professionalism for young women in
engineering and technical sciences. Whether you’re looking to network with professionals, meet
new friends, or volunteer in our local community, Alpha Omega Epsilon has something for you!
My decision to join A.O.E. was a life-changing decision. It is difficult to imagine what my time
here would have been like without my sisters. I am honored to lead an exceptionally talented
group of individuals.
Our growth and success is dependent on the remarkable women we welcome every semester.
We would love to have you join us during your undergraduate career at the University of
Illinois. Please take a look around our website to learn more about what we have to offer and do
not hesitate to contact us to learn more!
In Friendship, Leadership, and Professionalism,
Alicia Qiu, Beta Eta
Theta Chapter President
