About Aristea

Aristea PSO is a vibrant, fun, and dynamic group of individuals, which was established in 1973. This means we are the oldest womxn’s PSO on campus. With our age comes not only rich history but a legacy of powerful leaders and womxn of mind and heart. Aristea is not a place for members to fit into a mold of any sort but rather to encourage each other's individuality, celebrate each other's differences and do our best to support each other's endeavours as best as we can.​​​

Aristea's vision and mission

Aristea is a home away from home where members feel they have a place and space to turn to and connect with others on campus. Aristea is an opportunity generator with our leadership development and co-curricular activities whereby members are encouraged to commit to their own personal development and growth. Aristea provides an identity that grounds an individual within a larger community. We are a group of individuals, each with a different story. A different experience and a different mindset, coming together to form something beautiful. Together we laugh, we cry, we learn, and we grow. We are not a place, but we are a support system and a crutch throughout your university career.​
