It matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be.

History of Alpha Omega Epsilon

Alpha Omega Epsilon is the first and only professional and social engineering sorority in the nation. It offers sisterhood, personal growth, and lifelong friendships for the growing women in engineering and the technical sciences.



It was founded on November 13, 1983 at Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin by 27 lovely ladies. In the following months, the first elections of the Alpha Chapter were made, naming Mary Ruth Szews as the first president.
The first candidate class was initiated the following fall, almost doubling their size. Since then, a total of 40 chapters have been established with three colonies currently working towards becoming new chapters.
