Letter from the President


Hello and welcome to the Kappa Tau chapter of Alpha Omicron Pi! Thank you for taking the time to explore our website and find out what life as an AOII is all about. As a part of the Southeastern Louisiana community, our chapter is proud to have maintained academic excellence while promoting our philanthropy and sisterhood. We're looking forward to another successful year and can’t wait to continue improving.

Service and philanthropy are an important part of our Greek experience. Our annual bowling tournament, Strike Out Arthritis, continues to be a success each year! Last year, we surpassed our goal by raising $21,232 dollars, all of which was donated to the Arthritis Foundation. The best part of the day is being able raise money for a cause so near and dear to our hearts with our families, fellow students and Greeks and the Hammond community while educating them on our philanthropy – Juvenile Arthritis. In addition to raising money for arthritis, Kappa Tau hosts a MADD Dash 5k in honor of our late sister, Beth Boudreaux, who was killed by a drunk driver. Each fall, Kappa Tau partners with Delta Tau Delta, a fraternity who lost a member to a similar incident to raise money for the Mothers Against Drunk Driving in Baton Rouge. We had over 250 people participate in this event and raised $7,463.25 this past fall. It is a true blessing to educate our community on the effects of drunk driving and to hopefully build enough awareness around this cause to prevent even one person from making a bad decision that could resulting in taking the life of another.

One of the major principles AOII is founded on is our commitment to college loyalty. Kappa Tau serves as leaders and role models on campus, contributing significantly to Southeastern. We have multiple members who hold positions for organizations, such as SGA and serve on various oversight committees. With women active in over 50 campus organizations, it’s easy to find an AOII among leaders! Our members make such significant contributions on campus and their dedication doesn’t go unnoticed. In 2019, our chapter was awarded Student Organization Award of Excellence, Outstanding Community Service Award, Greek Female Academic Award of Excellence, and Greek Female Intramural Sports Award. Eleven sisters received the “Green S” award as outstanding SLU student leaders, and individual members received: Sorority Woman of the Year, Most Outstanding Freshman Woman of the Year, and DSA Leadership Ambassador! Kappa Tau strives to inspire ambition in leadership and encourages others to discover their passion in leadership.

Deciding to join the Alpha O family at Southeastern has been one of the most exciting and fulfilling decisions I’ve made since coming to campus. Being a part of this chapter has not only allowed me to meet so many wonderful peers who have since turned into great friends, but it also has also broadened my perspectives, bolstered my academics, and challenged and refined my leadership skills in the most empowering way. I’m so grateful for the chance to be a part of such an awesome and impactful organization, and I look forward to watching the chapter grow and excel even more this year. Each member brings a unique and valued presence to our house, and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome home our new class next spring. We hope you enjoy learning more about our chapter and hope to see you soon!

Alpha Love and More,

Nicole Redmond
