Who are we?

     Alpha Rho Omega is a recognized sorority of Lycoming College. Since 1981, Alpha Rho has remained a group of unique individuals who come together to maintain a sisterhood of Unity, Loyalty, Individuality, Respect and Trust!

     The sisterhood of Alpha Rho Omega originated from the Alpha Sigma Phi national fraternity. (Many of Alpha Rho Omega's founding sisters were actually little sisters of this fraternity!) Since then, Alpha Rho Omega prides itself on being a small, supportive, and close-knit group of women. Our sisterhood has not looked for women to simply wear our Greek letters, but to uphold our ideals while constantly achieving their very best. 

The sisters are also involved on campus, participating in many clubs and organizations including: Dance Club, Raging Stitches, German Club, and Equestrian Club. 

Founder's Day: April 1st, 1981

Motto: "Hang the trifle, woman! Take thee honor!" --W. Shakespeare, The Merry Wives of Windsor II.i.
