NSU Native American Sorority Named Undergrad Chapter of Year

Even though the Northeastern State University Theta Chapter of Alpha Pi Omega (APiO) is a small one—only six members—they were recognized at the organization’s national convention as the Undergraduate Chapter of the Year.

To be considered, each chapter of APiO submits a portfolio chronicling the projects it was involved with during the 2010-11 academic year, as well as outside recognitions.

“These students do a lot for a small organization,” said Asa Lewis, faculty adviser for the APiO chapter, in a press release. “They care about their community personally and collectively. They’ve shown what they can do in the community and it is nice to see them win this award.”

Having a small chapter isn’t unusual.

“We are a Native American sorority based on Native American culture,” Brooke Seawright, Chickasaw, said. “We would rather have five or six outstanding women than 20 or 30 joining for the wrong reasons. These women strive to do so much for the campus and the community. It might be nice to have more members. Our problem, if it can be called that, is that our members keep graduating.”

The sorority was created in 1994 at the University of North Carolina and now has 14 chapters with 400 women representing 70 tribes.
