Order of Omega is a society based on leadership and academics and limits membership to 3% of the total number of enrolled fraternity/sorority undergraduates. Gamma Sigma Alpha membership is solely based on academics and there is no limit to the number of students a chapter can initiate.
Order of Omega is a National Honor Society for juniors and seniors in the Greek community. Parker F. Enright, a fraternity advisor at the University of Miami, visualized the creation of an organization that would embrace the philosophy of the college fraternity. His visualization became reality when the first chapter of Order of Omega was founded on April 14, 1959, at the University of Miami in Miami, FL. The group functioned locally until a second chapter was chartered on February 9, 1967, at the University of Southern Mississippi under the direction of Dean Patrick W. Halloran. The organization began to develop nationally. Order of Omega became a co-ed organization in the spring of 1977 thus honoring all in Greek leadership. Since then, Order of Omega has proudly established chapters at over 600 campuses.
To be considered, you must have at least a 3.0 GPA, be a member of a CPC, IFC, MGC or NPHC fraternity or sorority, and be of junior or senior standing (60 credit hours). Members are chosen based on scholastic, leadership, and involvement in the Georgia Tech and Greek communities.
The Order of Omega chapter here hosts several events throughout the year including round table discussions, guest speakers, philanthropy events, networking events with alumni, and general meetings. Members of Order of Omega strive to develop their leadership abilities and professionalism during their involvement with this organization.
Gamma Sigma Alpha was founded at the University of Southern California on November 9, 1989, by a group of scholastic achievers representing various fraternities and sororities dedicated to the advancement of higher education and academic accomplishment. Today, this honor society has more than 215 chapters and recognizes nearly 2,500 members of fraternities and sororities each year.
Membership is restricted to students who are of junior or senior academic standing who have achieved at least a 3.85 cumulative or semester grade point average at Georgia Tech. If you have questions, please e-mail Dr. Jamison Keller at firstname.lastname@example.org.
