Order of Omega

 

 

Order of Omega is a national leadership honor society for members of Fraternity & Sorority organizations.  Order of Omega recognizes juniors and seniors who have exemplified high standards in the areas of scholarship, leadership, involvement within their respective organizations and within the Fraternity/Sorority community, campus, and local community.  Members are selected from the top 3% of students at each institution.  To date, over 500 chapters have been chartered throughout North America, each sharing the common goal of recognizing the many outstanding student leaders at their institutions.  

 

The Gamma Alpha chapter was chartered at the University of Arkansas in 1978.  We exist to provide service, social and educational opportunities for Greek Juniors and Seniors to promote their continued involvement on campus and within the Greek community at the University of Arkansas.  For more information, please contact Order of Omega advisor Zachary Littrell.
