Order of Omega is an International Leadership Honorary Society recognizing the top 3 percent of fraternity and sorority members annually. Order of Omega was founded at the University of Miami (FL) 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 Order of Omega voted to become a coeducational organization in the spring of 1977. The Order of Omega now has over 550 chapters across the United States and Canada.
The purpose of the Order of Omega is threefold. First, to recognize those students who have attained a high standard of leadership in inter-Greek activities, to encourage them to continue along this line, and to inspire others to strive for similar conspicuous attainment. Second, to bring together the most representative fraternity and sorority members, and to create an organization that will help to mold the sentiment of the institution on questions of local and intercollegiate affairs. The final purpose is to bring together members of the faculty, alumni/ae, and student members of the institution’s fraternities and sororities on a basis of mutual interest, understanding, and helpfulness.
The Omicron Beta Chapter was chartered in 1995 at The College at Brockport.
Since our founding, we have initiated more than 159 members.
