A Message from Danielle Luther,
of Membership Recruitment…
is very excited that you have made the decision to join us as students on the
Hilltop and perhaps become a member of our sisterhood. The sororities
at Birmingham-Southern pride themselves on creating a memorable
Recruitment experience. As potential new members (PNM) you will be placed in Rho Gamma groups along with
other female students participating in Recruitment. There are three nights
of Recruitment, each devised to introduce you to each chapter and its
members. At AOII, we have been preparing for Recruitment and the arrival
of our new members! We are all excited to have the opportunity
to introduce you to our strong sisterhood and the factors that
make AOII unique in our hearts and on campus.

to BSC and we hope you have a wonderful recruitment experience!
the first night of recruitment. This night gives PNM's the opportunity
to visit all of the sorority houses and meet many sorority
women. On this night we hope to impress PNM's with our chapter’s
strong sisterhood, involvement & achievements, and history. We also have a chance to show off our skills, as we perform AOII's rendition of Billy Joel's "For the Longest Time!"
Skit Night allows PNM's to relax
as they become our audience and enter the AOII world of “Camelot.”
Tau Delta has been performing this skit for over 40 years, and take great pride in this precious tradition. Over four decades, the message of the skit has not changed: Alpha Omicron
Pi will always be a place where you can be yourself. Don't forget to try our Panhellenic-renowned
evening parties, casually known as Pref Night, make up the
final night of recruitment. We, along with all the sororities, take
this night very seriously as we reveal the importance that AOII
holds in our lives. Tonight creates the opportunity to further
learn about our strong sisterhood and heritage at BSC. This
night allows PNM's to find the place they feel best represents
the morals and expectations they consider their own. The sisters
of AOII hope to create an environment that permits the PNM's
to relax on this stressful night as we provide insight as
to why we selected AOII.
The tiresome week of
rush culminates in this exciting day. PNM's eagerly anticipate
receiving their bid cards that will let them know to which
sorority they will soon belong, while sorority women are filled
with equal anticipation as they await the list bearing their
new sisters’ names. The anxiousness is soon replaced
with excitement as bid cards are delivered and PNM's race
to the sorority amphitheatre to meet their new sisters.
