Nicholas Olivares, the president of the Beta Omicron Chapter of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity, was inducted into NSU’s Greek honor society, the Order of Omega on February 26, 2019.
Order of Omega is a national organization recognizing those fraternity men and women who have attained a high standard of leadership in interfraternity activities. Order of Omega encourages them to continue along this line, and to inspire others to strive for similar conspicuous attainment.
“By bringing together outstanding fraternity men and women to create an organization which will help to mold the sentiment of the institution on questions of local and intercollegiate fraternity affairs,” NSU’s website stated. “Order of Omega brings 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. Through the creation of an atmosphere where ideas and issues can be discussed openly across Greek lines and to help work out solutions.”
Members of the Mu Phi Chapter of Order Omega, which was founded at NSU in 1992, must apply for membership after meeting certain requirements, including achieving a GPA higher than the All-Greek average. More than 500 Greeks have been inducted into the Mu Phi Chapter.
Olivares, a junior psychology major from Lilttle Elm, Texas, is currently serving as Beta Omicron Chapter archon and is involved in the Spirit of Northwestern Marching Band.
9 new members were inducted into the society Tuesday night, as well as NSU President Dr. Chris Maggio and the Dean of the College of Business & Technology, Dr. Margaret Kilcoyne.
