Order of Omega

The Order of Omega was created in the fall of 1959 at the University of Miami. It was created to, first, recognize those students who have attained a high standard of leadership in inter-fraternal activities. Secondly, to bring together the most representative fraternity and sorority members and to create an organization to help mold the sentiment of the institution on questions of local and intercollegiate affairs. Finally, to bring together members of the institution's fraternities and sororities on a basis of mutual interest, understanding, and helpfulness.

The Pi Beta chapter of The Order of Omega was founded here at William & Mary in 1996. It recognizes outstanding William & Mary Fraternity and Sorority memberss for their scholarship, leadership in their fraternity or sorority, and service to the school and community.
