Order of Omega

The Order of Omega is a leadership honor society. Members are chosen from Greek-letter, social organizations in order to recognize those students who have attained a high level of leadership in inter-Greek activities. Furthermore, it is organized to encourage members to continue along this line and to inspire others to strive for similar conspicuous attainment. The Order of Omega was founded at the University of Miami in the fall of 1959. Since that time, more than 300 campuses have been honored with the establishment of a chapter. 

The purpose of Order of Omega is:

  • 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.
  • To inspire others to strive for similar conspicuous attainment.
  • To unite outstanding fraternity men and women to create an organization which will help to mold the sentiment of the institution on questions of local intercollegiate fraternity affairs.
  • To bring together faculty members, alumni and students 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.

The Eta Lambda chapter at the University of Dayton was chartered on August 19, 1986 and continues to fulfill its standards of high quality and positive representation throughout the campus. More than 300 leaders from UD fraternities and sororities have been initiated into the Order of Omega since 1986.

Eligibility for the Eta Lambda chapter of Order of Omega is as follows:

  • One full academic year at RMU;
  • Junior or Senior (undergraduate standing);
  • Rank academically above the all-Greek average (currently 3.30 cumulative GPA); and
  • Be in good standing with the initiate's fraternal organization and University.

Selection of applicants is completed by initiated members of the organization considering the following areas:

  • Character
  • Scholarship
  • Greek offices held
  • Greek participation
  • Service to the university
  • Service to the local community

No more than 3% of the UD Greek community may be initiated into the Order of Omega per year. Membership recruitment and selection only occurs in the fall semester. Before a member can be initiated they must pay the one-time initiation fee of $90.00

Semester Reports

Fraternities and sororities foster academic success and lifelong membership development through a variety of dynamic initiatives. Each fraternity and sorority maintains its own scholarship standards and programs, and the Center for Student Involvement guides high levels of accountability for council, chapter, and individual accountability.  

The Semester Report is updated and posted approximately one month after the end of every term, providing public information in the aggregate about chapters' academic standing, membership, and overall community statistics.  To secure a unique chapter report with information on member grades, please have a chapter President or Scholarship Officer contact the office at 937-229-4114.
