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 PSO is committed to creating a space that fosters belonging and promotes development through constant learning and appreciation for our members. Through servant-driven leadership, we aim to be held accountable just as we hold others accountable. Whilst intentionally embodying the values of our house and the greater community.
Approachability, Respect, Responsibility, Integrity,
