Interested in becoming a member?

There are several ways to become a member of the Alpha Omicron Pi chapter at the University of Mississippi! More commonly, Nu Beta seeks potential new members through Formal Recruitment held in the fall by the University of Mississippi College Panhellenic. You can find more information about this process here.


However, potential new members can also seek membership through informal recruitment, also known as ‘Continuous Open Bidding’. The COB process is a more casual form of recruitment where you can meet active members at the house for lunch or go for a coffee date! For more information on the informal recruitment process,

please contact our Director of Informal Recruitment, Emily Stoddard at

AOII also has an Alumna Initiate membership program to recruit new members who are no longer collegians. For specific information on how to become an alumna initiate or how to recommend someone for alumna initiation,

please contact our Director of Lifetime Engagement, Abbey Booth at

New Member Program

AOII’s New Member Program, much like the educational mission of Alpha Omicron Pi, is centered on a promise. This mutual agreement between new members and AOII helps our organization to grow and flourish, all while ensuring the development and integrity of our members. 

New member classes meet weekly to learn about AOII as they build their sisterhood. During these meetings, they will utilize The Promise, the AOII membership education manual which provides information about AOII, our history, our policies and our principles. In addition to weekly meetings, a new member retreat is held to allow members to bond as a group through a fun day or overnight trip together. 

On top of learning about AOII, new members are also able to participate in scheduled Greek Life events and support their fellow fraternity and sorority organizations’ philanthropic events. 


The typical new member period lasts 6 to 8 weeks and is strategically planned to provide members with an exceptional new member experience. The culmination of this period includes AOII initiation preparation activities.

Want to Recommend a New Member?

A Membership Information Form (MIF) is our easy-to-use, electronic form that provides information on a Potential New Member (PNM) to a collegiate chapter for recruitment. All initiated members of AOII, in good standing, are encouraged to participate in this process that benefits both the chapter and the PNM. Collegiate members are allowed to submit MIFs for chapters other than their own.
