Honor Societies and Committees

Honor Societies

There are also two additional unique experiences for fraternity and sorority members at Ohio University. These include the Order of Omega Honor society and the Rho Lambda Honor society. 

Order of Omega Logo

The Order of Omega honor society has been at Ohio University since 1984. The organization is for affiliated students who are of junior or senior status and have achieved academic success. To be eligible for induction, potential members must complete an application and have demonstrated commitment to the fraternal and campus community. Members meet on a biweekly basis to discuss issues affecting the community, and work on educational and programming initatives. The Order of Omega has held a benefit dinner during Women's History Month for the Ohio Alliance to End Sexual Violence, and in the past has contributed to the annual Sorority & Fraternity Life awards program.

Greek Community Council

The Greek Community Council is the funding source for most major programming for the Greek community at Ohio University such as All-Council Meetings, the All Greek Expo, the Officer Training Retreat, Homecoming Week festivities, the Greek Week competition, and the Sorority & Fraternity Life Awards Banquet. Funding comes from a fee charged to affiliated students through their governing council, and is overseen by staff members in the Sorority & Fraternity Life office. For major programming events, budgeting is also done by a student planning committee.

 

Sorority & Fraternity Life Committee

The Sorority & Fraternity Life Committee is a standing committee through Ohio University's Faculty Senate. The committee is comprised of students, faculty, and staff. The SFL Committee is responsible for upholding the academic guidelines for individual sororities and fraternities, reviewing matters affecting the Greek community, overseeing expansion and reinstatement efforts, and for making policy recommendations to the Vice President for Student Affairs.
