About Order of Omega

Order of Omega members are selected from the highest achieving fraternity or sorority members (must be a upperclassman to apply) at each institution. To date, over 575+ chapters have been chartered throughout North America with over 240,000 members initiated since 1959. 

Order of Omega is a leadership honor society for members of Fraternity & Sorority organizations. Order of Omega recognizes upperclassmen who have exemplified high standards in the areas of scholarship, leadership, involvement within their respective organization and within the Fraternity/Sorority, campus, and local community. Members share the common goal of recognizing the many outstanding student leaders at their institution.

Fall 2020 Art Contest Rules and Regulations

This year, we have all experienced life in new and unexpected ways. Whether it’s because of a global pandemic or learning more about diversity and inclusion in our communities, many of us have stories to tell. We want to see those stories in the form of artistic expression. We invite all members and chapters of Order of Omega to participate in the first-ever Order of Omega Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Art Contest. Find out how to participate below.

The tenets of Order of Omega focus on leadership, unity, and fellowship. In addition, as members, we all stand by the ideals of inspiring others to be leaders, build community on our campuses, and bring together those around us in understanding and helpfulness. This shared purpose is as important now as it has ever been and we challenge you to create an artistic expression that you feel promotes what Order of Omega stands for and represents as we all strive to make our communities – and the world around us – a better place for all of our brothers and sisters.
