Academic excellence is the first and most important core value of the Greek community at the University of Mississippi. Through our three honor societies, we acknowledge Greek students who have excelled scholastically and served as leaders in the campus community. Descriptions of our honor societies are below:
Order of Omega
Order of Omega is a leadership honor society for members of Fraternity and Sorority organizations. Order of Omega recognizes juniors and seniors who have exemplified high standards in the areas of scholarship, leadership, involvement within their respective organization and within the Fraternity/Sorority, campus, and local community. Members are selected from the top 3% of students at each institution. To date, over 500 chapters have been chartered throughout North America, each sharing the common goal of recognizing the many outstanding student leaders at their institution.
Rho Lambda is a national sorority leadership recognition society. The purpose of Rho Lambda is to honor those women within the sorority community who have exhibited the highest qualities of leadership and service to their Greek community and their sorority. They are women who have furthered the ideals and principles of the Greek community throughout their years of sorority affiliation.
