Alpha Omega Epsilon

Tau Chapter


Alpha Omega Epsilon is a professional and social sorority founded for women studying engineering and technical science in Marquette University on November 13, 1983. Sisters that join promote our ideals and objectives, which hope to further the advancement of female STEM professionals while at the same time developing bonds of lifelong friendships. The Tau Chapter at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute was founded on April 23, 2006.

What does it mean to be both professional and social? We will host mixers with both Greek and independent student organizations, and we hold a semi-formal and a formal every year. We will also practice dressing professionally, conduct mock interviews, and critique each other’s resumes. It is not just looking the part, but actively choosing to act professionally on a daily basis.
Our national philanthropy is FIRST Robotics, but the Tau Chapter consistently supports the Albany chapter of Dress for Success and the American Cancer Society as well. Our favorite sisterhood events are our Friday Night Dinners. We have a growing catalog of academic backwork for sister use. You can find our sisters in executive positions in student government, philanthropy organizations, music associations, and more at RPI.
