Goals

To encourage all members to excel academically, while also contributing to the community, the colleges, and to Omega.  To strive to have several philanthropic and fundraising events that not only better the sisters and the house, but the community and colleges as well.  To recruit members who are individuals that demonstrate both loyalty and strength, and to pass down traditions that have been carried by the house since our foundation.


Recent Activities

Recently, Omega's current and former sisters worked together to raise money for Hospice's Children's Bereavement Program which includes Camp Healing Hearts, the annual summer grief camp for children ages 5-17.  Money and awareness have also been raised lately for Omega's philanthropy, American Cancer Society, along with Suicide Prevention and the Potsdam Humane Society.  The sisters also participate in Sigma Chi's Derby Days every Fall and Relay for Life at both Potsdam & Clarkson in the Spring.
