Frequently Asked Questions
What does "Social and Professional" sorority mean?
It's exactly what it sounds like! Alpha Omega Epsilon is a mix of the best of both worlds, as we like to call it.
As a social sorority, we host many social events like mixers and game nights to connect not only with other Greek organizations on campus, but with our own sisters as well. Our sisters enjoy events from date nights and semi-formals to virtual sisterhood craft nights. We maintain ourselves as a professional organization by hosting everything from LinkedIn workshops to alumni networking events.
What kind of resources could AΩE provide me?
We have three main values, Professionalism, Leadership, and Friendship. In terms of professional opportunities, we host a variety of professional events for our sisters such as grad school panels, resume help, etc. We also have a large network of alumna and current sisters who have held coops, internships, and full time jobs with companies in a variety of fields that are more than willing to connect sisters with opportunities. As well as being a professional sorority, we are also a social sorority that can allow you to meet lots of our lovely sisters as well as other members of greek organizations.
How much are dues and what do they cover?
During a candidate semester, dues are $400. During active semesters, dues are $350.
Candidate dues can be paid in 4 installments or all at once. During active semesters, dues are paid at once or in multiple steps through a payment plan arranged with our treasurer.
Throughout semesters we also sell various merchandise and host events which occasionally have a cost associated with them, but these are optional.

How is Alpha Omega Epsilon different from other sororities?
We are not an NPC chapter.
A.O.E. is still a part of the CPC community, but we are not an NPC chapter. This means our recruitment is not as formatted, our requirements are different, and our focus is not solely on social development.
Our chapter integrates professional development into our organization and we actively look for women who are passionate about STEM as a requirement for joining. We are a smaller chapter than other NPC chapters. We average 20-40 active sisters while most NPC chapters average 190 active sisters. Our sisters know every member in the chapter, creating a tight-knit community.
AΩE is similar to other sororities in the fact that we still participate in the Greek community through events like Homecoming and Greek Week. We also host social events like other sororities such as mixers, date nights, etc. where our sisters are able to interact with other members of the Greek community or just new people in general. While we have similarities to other sororities, we also have differences. One main difference is our size and dues. AΩE is significantly smaller than most other sororities in terms of the numbers of members and since we don’t have a house our dues are also significantly cheaper.
Does Alpha Omega Epsilon have a house?
Across all our chapters, Alpha Omega Epsilon does not have houses on college campuses because it increases insurance premiums and causes dues to skyrocket. However, the chapter at Georgia Tech has an on campus housing block, meaning that we are all roommates on the same floor and building in campus housing. This is paid the same as regular on campus housing, and is entirely optional. If you would like to know more you can reach out to our Vice President.
