Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., Omicron Nu Chapter (Princeton University)

The First. The Finest. Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated.

Alpha Kappa Alpha was founded on January 15, 1908 on the campus of Howard University by guiding light Ethel Hedgeman Lyle. Together with 19 other visionary women, she designed the group to cultivate high scholastic and ethical standards; elevate the presence of collegiate Black women; promote unity and friendship; foster a positive impact on college campuses and surrounding neighborhoods; and keep alive within alumni an interest in college life. It was both a sisterhood and a community service organization. And it was designed for life membership.

In the fall of 1985, Terri Sewell brought this noble intent and tradition to Princeton. She, along with seven other trailblazing women, fought for the sorority's existence at their own school. Their work was realized on May 28, 1988, when Omicron Nu received its chapter charter. Because of their efforts, college women at Princeton and Westminster Choir College can enjoy a sisterhood that has withstood the challenges of over 100 years.

Sorors of Omicron Nu are teachers and professors. Entrepreneurs and executives. Actors and activists. Midwives and administrators. Doctors and lawyers. Loving wives and dedicated mothers. And much more.

Membership is exclusive and hard-earned. And well worth the reward.
