Order of Omega is a leadership honor society for fraternity/sorority members.  Order of Omega recognizes juniors and seniors who have exemplified high standards in the areas of scholarship, leadership, involvement within their respective organization and within the fraternity/sorority, campus, and local communities. Members are selected from the top 3% of students at each institution. To date, over 500 chapters have been chartered throughout North America, each sharing the common goal of recognizing the many outstanding student leaders at their institution.

Upsilon Upsilon Chapter was chartered on October 31st, 2006. Its most prominent annual program is our annual Fraternity and Sorority of Excellence, a program designed to recognize chapters for commitment to fraternal values and community standards. This program is held each Fall. Order of Omega is a non-hazing, non-pledging organization.

Purpose:
• To recognize those fraternity men and sorority 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 sorority 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 institution’s fraternities and sororities on a basis of mutual interest, understanding and helpfulness.

What are the benefits of being a member of Order of Omega? Membership has a different value for each member. In addition to recognizing academic achievement, Order of Omega allows members of a campus community to unite under common values. Local chapters might coordinate programs for members, and scholarships are available through the national body. Graduates can also purchase cords to wear in a commencement ceremony, marking their membership in Order of Omega.
