We Don't Accept Applications....ONLY COMMITMENTS!
"THERE'S A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN INTEREST AND COMMITMENT. WHEN YOU'RE INTERESTED IN DOING SOMETHING, YOU DO IT ONLY WHEN IT'S CONVENIENT. WHEN YOU'RE COMMITTED TO SOMETHING, YOU ACCEPT NO EXCUSES; ONLY RESULTS."
MEMBERS VERSUS MEN
"The value of our Fraternity is not in numbers, but in men, in real brotherhood. Eight men thoroughly immersed in the true Omega spirit are far greater assets than eighty with lukewarm enthusiasm.
Men, real men of Omega calibre, strive for that which is most difficult of attainment. Keep Omega the most difficult Greek letter Society in which to obtain membership and be assured that Omega material will never be found lacking."
Walter Herbert Mazyck (Alpha 1913), the Oracle, 1925
