I joined A.O.E. in the spring semester of my freshman year because I was looking for a group of like-minded women who I could be myself around, relate to, and unwind from the stresses of school with. I found myself feeling somewhat isolated from others during my first semester at Tech because of how much time I spent working, so joining A.O.E. was one of the best decisions I could've made. It has given me blocked out social time where I get to spend time with amazing, passionate, and uplifting women, and has helped me take a step back from academic stresses. Everyone is so friendly and inclusive, and I'm so lucky to be part of such a wonderful organization with the best atmosphere.
