Order of Omega
The National Order of Omega is an honor society recognizing outstanding academic achievement in the undergraduate Greek community. The Nu Alpha Chapter at SUNY Geneseo was founded in Spring 1993 and has since inducted over 350 members. The Order of Omega was founded on four basic principles:
- To recognize those fraternity men and 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 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;
To help create an atmosphere where ideas and issues can be discussed openly across Greek lines and to help work out solutions.
Applications for Order of Omega are accepted in November of each year with inductions being held in January. Greek-affiliated students in their Junior and Senior year, who have a GPA at or above the all-Greek average, are eligible to apply.
