Gamma Alpha Omega Sorority, Inc
National HerstoryNational Herstory
Local HerstoryOn October 2000, six women came together to discuss the possibility of establishing a Latina based sorority at Humboldt State University. These six women shared the same vision and quest as the Most Honorable Founding Mothers and Charters. At the time of their meeting, there was only one other Hispanic/ Latino group on campus. Noticing the lack of Latino representation at HSU, these women formed the Interest group of Gamma Alpha Omega Sorority, Inc. and began meeting on a regular basis. On January 26, 2001, the Interest Group of Gamma Alpha Omega Sorority, Inc. received word that they had been accepted as a local sorority on campus. The Petitioning Group of GAO traveled to Milwaukee, WI in April 2002 to make a presentation to the National B.O.D. and became the Charter Colony, the first in California. Upon their return, six hardworking and motivated ladies, who are known today as the Charter Class, had the same vision and joined them in their quest. On October 2002 all the members of the Charter Colony went to Texas Tech University in Lubbock, TX and once again, they made a presentation to the National B.O.D. and were initiated as the Pi Chapter of Gamma Alpha Omega Sorority, Inc. on October 25, 2002.
