Alpha Rho Omega is comprised of more than 400 college-educated women from diverse backgrounds. To achieve its goals and maintains its profile in the community, the chapter draws on its diverse constituency of women representing a variety of professions, including the business, legal, political, media, educational, governmental, technological , entertainment, and healthcare industries. Many of these women have distinguished themselves with graduate and professional degrees as well as high achievements in their respective fields while still contributing to the sorority. Yet, the chapter seeks to expand its reach to more women who share its sincere interest in life-long service to the organization and our community.
