Maintaining Recognition

The Department of Greek Student Engagement and Development has implemented a Relationship Statement that establishes each Greek-letter organization on campus.  Within the Statement is information related to the process of becoming a recognized Greek-letter organization at WCU.  The Registration and Recognition (R&R) process outlines the requirements for chapters.  This process involves a registration packet of updated information, attending programs across the University, setting goals, and working with other chapters to encourage unity.  At the end of the academic year, chapters will present their accomplishments and areas of improvement to the R&R Review Committee.

Leadership Opportunities

As an undergraduate student, there are many ways to get involved at Western Carolina University.  Membership in a fraternity or sorority adds another layer of opportunities to become a leader.  There are opportunities to become a leader at the chapter, council, and Department level.  Leaders within the fraternity and sorority community have an added sense of belonging and a voice in the current and future experience of Greek students.

Chapter Executive Positions

The opportunity to lead your chapter is challenging but extremely rewarding. Elections for chapter executive members are generally conducted on a yearly-basis and voted on by fellow chapter members. We encourage you to explore this opportunity after becoming a part of an organization.

Council Members

Becoming a council member is an opportunity to influence the broader council community beyond your chapter.  Generally council members have been a part of their organizations for at least a semester.  The role of the council (CPC, IFC, NPHC) is to serve the chapters who are affiliated with them.  The councils tend to hold multiple meetings a month, plan programs, handle finances of the group, and, in some cases, direct recruitment.

Undergraduate Intern

The student intern position will assist the Department of Greek Student Engagement and Development in everyday operations.  The purpose is to have a continued student voice in everything the Department creates or develops.  The intern will have the opportunity to learn more about the inner operations of GSED, as well as higher education. This position will receive a stipend each year and requires eight (8) hours a week.


Order of Omega

Order of Omega

Western Carolina University ORDER OF OMEGA – Theta Pi Chapter

The Order of Omega was founded at Miami University in Ohio 1959 by a group of Greek leaders who felt that individuals in the Greek Community should be recognized for their service to the fraternity system and the university. There are now over 300 chapters in the United States.
