Order of Omega

The Order of Omega recognizes fraternity men and women who have attained a high standard of leadership in interfraternity activities, to encourage them to continue along this line, and to inspire others to strive for similar conspicuous attainment.

The Order of Omega was founded at the University of Miami in 1959 by a group of fraternity men who believed that individuals in the Greek community should be recognized for their service to the fraternity system and the University.

The Chapter of Miami had long desired for their organization to expand to other colleges and universities. The chapter gave its sanction to Dean Patrick W. Halloran to make initial inquiries and to further grant charters to universities that were accredited and interested in the purpose of The Order of Omega. On February 9, 1967, a chapter was chartered at the University of Southern Mississippi. There are now over 300 chapters in the United States.

Purpose

  • To recognize those fraternity men and women who have attained a high standard of leadership in interfraternity activities, to encourage them to continue along this line, and to inspire others to strive for similar conspicuous attainment
  • To bring together outstanding fraternity men and women to create an organization which will help to mold the sentiment of the institution on questions of local and intercollegiate fraternity affairs
  • To bring together members of the faculty, alumni, and student members of the fraternities and sororities on a basis of mutual interest, understanding, and helpfulness
  • To help create an atmosphere where ideas and issues can be discussed openly across Greek lines and to help work out solutions.
