Order of Omega is a national leadership honor society recognizing academic achievement, Greek leadership, and service to the campus community. The purpose of this organization is to credit those individuals in the Greek community who have shown exemplary service to their chapter, the Greek community and Otterbein University.
Order of Omega is limited to those Greeks who are in the top three percent at Otterbein University, both in academics and service to the community. Members must have a 3.5 GPA, be a contributing member of the community, and of junior or senior status. Students are selected for this honor by the Office of Greek Life based on the above qualities.
Order of Omega was founded at the University of Miami in 1959 by a group of outstanding fraternity men, who felt that individuals in the Greek community should be recognized for their service to the fraternity system and the university. The idea of an honorary for fraternity men at the University of Miami is attributed to Parker F. Enright, the advisor to fraternities at the time.
