Sisters, family, and friends,

Welcome to the official website for the Beta Xi Chapter of Alpha Omega Epsilon at Washington University in St. Louis. My name is Chelsea Branson, and I am honored to serve Beta Xi as President this year. Alpha Omega Epsilon Sorority was founded in 1983 as an international organization for women studying engineering and the technical sciences, and the Beta Xi Chapter was established at Washington University on April 19, 2014. As a group, we work to develop strong female leaders who will continue to pursue their passions in engineering and technical sciences despite any barriers that may be in place.

Our Sisters excel both in and out of the classroom and study in a wide variety of scientific disciplines. Academic success is encouraged through our sisterhood; we consistently attain an above-average GPA. We are proud to be leaders around campus and the St. Louis community where we dedicate our time to philanthropy and STEM education outreach. Some of our past activities have included coaching the robotics team at the Hawthorn Leadership School for Girls, hosting résumé workshops, and holding events where young women can visit campus to learn more about science and engineering.

Alpha Omega Epsilon has given me countless opportunities for growth through friendships, professional development workshops, and leadership opportunities. I cannot wait to see what the next year has in store for this chapter. As President, I look forward to leading this amazing group of women through a year of expansion and our first large graduation of seniors.

In friendship, leadership, and professionalism,
