"One motto, one badge, one bond, and singleness of heart!" - AOII has no insignia or crest, but uses our badge as our symbol
to the outside world. The founders reasoned that the Fraternity should adhere to ancient Greek ideals, and not Medieval ones
of crests, shields, and other symbols.
Object of the Fraternity
"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."

promoting friendship for a lifetime, inspiring academic excellence and lifetime learning, and developing leadership skills
through service to the Fraternity and community .
Our goal is to be the most forward thinking organization, addressing
issues relevant to women and society. "
