Alpha Omega Epsilon is an international sorority that takes pride in being able to combine social, academic, and service qualities of other Greek societies into one organization. However, since we consider ourselves professional, we prohibit hazing of any form during our candidacy process.
We sponsor many types of charitable events, social events, and academic events. We are actively involved with Syracuse University and the local Syracuse community. We firmly believe that professional character is defined by a diverse range of qualities.
We are dedicated to the well being and success of our members. We pledge to learn from, teach, and love one another to better ourselves and those around us. By accomplishing these mighty tasks, we hope to prepare our members for the world ahead of them and to give them an edge above the competition.
Please include complete name of organization as well as chapter charter designation.
i.e (NY Alpha Chapter of Beta Psi)
Alpha Omega Epsilon - Zeta Chapter (NY)
Please list information about the organizations selection process and include membership requirements if applicable.
Recruitment is a period of one to two weeks where the sisters of Alpha Omega Epsilon host a variety of events to allow you to get to know us better. You can go to as many or as few events as you would like. There is no obligation for you to become a potential new member if you attend a recruitment event, simply join us for a time filled with fun and food! Recruitment occurs every semester.

We hereby represent and certify that all activities sponsored, suggested, advance,
or required by our organization or members or prospective members comply with the Syracuse
University Hazing Policy and applicable excerpts from the New York State Law on Hazing
We have informed the present members and prospective members of our organization of the
contents and application of the Syracuse University Hazing Policy. This policy will be read to our members and the
prospective members on a semester basis
We acknowledge and understand that any failure to uphold the Syracuse University Hazing Policy may /will result in
referral to The Office of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs for an organizational violation of the Syracuse University
Hazing Policy (meaning the organization will face charges), and/or referral to the Office of Judicial Affairs for any individual violation of the Syracuse University Hazing Policy (meaning that individuals within the
organization who haze shall face charges).
I Agree and understand
The Office of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs does not support or condone any type of hazing activities from any fraternity or sorority.
The University Policy on Hazing says the following:
Syracuse University defines hazing to include any action that
intentionally or recklessly causes or poses a substantial risk of harm to the mental or physical health or safety of one or more persons. Subjecting any person to and/or encouraging any person to commit an act that violates human dignity, the Code of Student Conduct, or the law for the purpose of initiating, promoting, fostering, or confirming any form of affiliation with a group or organization is prohibited. The express or implied consent of participants or victims
will not be a defense.
Examples of hazing include, but are not limited to: forced
consumption of alcohol or other substances, sleep deprivation, threats of harm, actual physical harm (e.g., paddling, beating, branding), performing any service or action under coercion or duress.
I read, understand, and agree
