Gamma Alpha Omega (ΓΑΩ) is a Latina-founded Greek letter intercollegiate sorority founded on January 25, 1993 on the campus of Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona.[1][2]

The organization is dedicated to promoting the achievement and quest of higher education amongst all women. The pillars of the sorority are honesty, integrity, leadership, scholarship and unity. The sorority is a member of the National Association of Latino Fraternal Organizations (NALFO). Gamma Alpha Omega was recognized nationally with the founding of Gamma Chapter, at the University of Washington on January 24, 1997. April 2001 marked a milestone for Gamma Alpha Omega, when the organization was officially recognized as an incorporated entity in the state of Arizona. [3]
