How We Got Here
Alpha Omega Tampon was created in the fall of 2021 at the University of California, Los Angeles. A few of our founding members decided to ironically sign up for formal Panhellenic sorority rush for the insider experience. After feeling the overwhelming predominance of whiteness, heteronormativity, and inaccessibility, they promptly dropped out. While still wanting the perk of an organized social community within the greater UCLA student body, the idea of Alpha Omega Tampon was born: A satirical "sorority" (social organization) for women and LGBTQ+ individuals with an emphasis on inclusivity and community, with no/low dues and no pressure for commitment. Alpha Omega Tampon is currently expanding to more colleges across the United States!
