Order of Omega
The Order of Omega was founded at the University of Miami (Ohio) in the fall of 1959 by fraternity members who felt that their Greek brothers and sisters should be recognized for their services.
Today, the Order of Omega serves over 500 campuses as a national honor society for Greek students who exemplify high standards in scholarship, leadership, and involvement within the Greek and local community.
The Phi Gamma Chapter was founded on June 25, 2007, to recognize the outstanding Greek leaders at The University of Texas at Tyler and to enhance the growing Greek community on campus.
The purpose of the Phi Gamma chapter of Order of Omega shall be threefold:
To recognize those students who have attained a high standard of leadership in inter-Greek activities, to encourage them to continue along this line and to inspire others to strive for similar conspicuous attainment.
To bring together the most representative fraternity and sorority members, and to create an organization which will help to mold the sentiment of the institution on questions of local and intercollegiate 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.
How to Join
Each semester, applications are available online to any Greek member that is a junior/senior level status and has a cumulative GPA that is at or above the all-Greek average at the time. The current membership selects candidates for interviews, after which new initiates are selected.
