"One motto, one badge, one bond, and singleness of heart!"

AOII has no insignia or crest. The founders reasoned that the Fraternity should adhere to ancient Greek ideals. It was different people in a later time - the middle ages - that produced the crests, shields, and other symbols of herald. We are truly Greek.


"The object of this fraternity shall be to encourage a spirit of fraternity and love among its members; to stand at all times for character, dignity, scholarship, and college loyalty; to strive for and support the best interests of the colleges and universities in which chapters are installed; and in no way to disregard, injure or sacrifice those interests for the sake of the prestige or advancement of the fraternity or any of its chapters."

Our goal is to be the most forward thinking organization, addressing issues relevant to women and society. "
