Order of Omega

History

The Order of Omega is a national Greek Leadership Honor Society. The Order was founded at the University of Miami in the fall of 1959 by a group of outstanding fraternity men, who felt that individuals in the Greek community should be recognized for their service to the fraternity system and the university.

The Miami chapter 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. The organization became co-ed in 1977 and now has over four hundred chapters in the United States.

The Omega Eta Chapter of The Order of Omega was chartered at Georgia Southern University in 1968. Membership is open to qualified junior and senior undergraduate Greek-affiliated students by application each spring semester.

Purpose of the Order

  • To recognize those fraternity men and women who have attained a high standard of leadership in inter-fraternity 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 affair;
  • 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;
  • To help create an atmosphere where ideas and issues can be discussed openly across Greek lines and to help work out solutions.

Selection for Order of Omega occurs at the beginning of each semester.
