Sigma Alpha Omega

About: Sigma Alpha Omega, "SAO", is a non-denominational, Christian social sorority that is first founded in Christ and second founded in sisterhood. Members encourage each other to grow in the Lord and in the Word while holding one another accountable through their friendships. Together, they pursue the Biblical ideals of Christian leadership, sisterhood, spiritual development, campus leadership, good scholarship, fine standards, service, excellence, and love through life in Christ. They enjoy Christian fellowship through Bible studies, service projects, social activities, and more. They are already sisters in Christ, so it feels natural for them to operate as a social sorority providing women a Christian focus in university Greek Life.

Mission: "To glorify God by reaching women across the world through the expansion of the sisterhood, by encouraging spiritual development through Christ‐inspired accountability and unity, by participating in evangelistic and philanthropic endeavors, and focusing on good scholarship and humble leadership."
