Order of Omega

Beta Beta Chapter

Order of Omega is a leadership society for members of Greek-lettered organizations. The qualifications for membership are based upon one's character, scholarship, service and leadership in the Greek Community.

Order of Omega was founded at the University of Miami (FL) 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 community and the University.

The Beta Beta Chapter at Old Dominion University was chartered on November 3, 1977.

Purpose of Order of Omega

  • To encourage them to continue along this line, and to inspire others to strive for similar conspicuous attainment;
  • To unite outstanding fraternity men and women to create an organization that 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.
