Order of Omega, Mu Psi chapter

Order of Omega logoThe Order of Omega was founded at Miami University (Ohio) in 1959 by a group of Greek leaders who felt that individuals in the Greek community should be recognized for their service to the fraternity system and the university.  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 Greek, campus, and local community. Its purpose is threefold:

  • To recognize those students who have attained a high standard of leadership in inter-Greek activities.
  • To create an organization that will help mold the sentiment of the institution on questions of local and intercollegiate affairs.
  • To bring together members of the faculty, alumni and student members of the institutions’ fraternities and sororities on a basis of mutual interest, understanding and helpfulness.

The Elon Chapter of the National Order of Omega was chartered on January 11, 1993.

Scholastic performance, class status, character, service and leadership achievements determine membership in The Order of Omega. Candidates for membership must:

  • Have a cumulative grade point average at or above the all-Greek average;
  • Have demonstrated commitment and leadership within their chapter and on campus;
  • Have Junior, Senior, Graduate, or Alumni status; and
  • Be in good standing with their fraternal organization.

The number of students initiated into membership in any one year may not exceed three percent of the total number of enrolled full-time Greek undergraduates at the beginning of the academic year on the main campus, or 15 persons, whichever number is greater.
