Chapter History:
 The Omicron Chapter of SAO, was founded at UNCW in 2005.
 We now have fifty girls who wanted to come together and form a friendship through Christ and
share Christ with those around us.


We have socials, service projects, fundraisers, and weekly meetings. What makes us different is that we also strive to live in the footsteps of Christ. We also have weekly Bible Studies and worship opportunities throughout the semester.
