Omega Delta Phi History
Phi was recognized as a new sorority at SUNY Potsdam in 1960 with 14 proud
new members. In February of 1963, the girls were able to buy their first
house at 4 Hamilton Street.
Omega took its first Clarkson
giving the house the best of both schools and an opportunity to bridge the
gap in the two Greek systems. Later on in '73, Theta Chi (formerly residing
at the Sig Pi house) became our brother fraternity.
Omega had enough alumni to form the Omega Delta Phi Alumni Association. Our
alumni association is active in helping provide funding for house repairs
and acts as consultants for issues such as house repairs and improvements.
We are grateful for their contributions and their support throughout the
proudly celebrated their 40th anniversary in the Spring of 2000. Every year
Omega Delta Phi continues to grow as a house and a family. Our family
currently resides at 51 Elm
Street, the same house we've owned since 1968
Being a part
of Greek Life is an amazing opportunity and a great way to get the most out
of your college experience. Sisters are not just friends, we are family. We
share a bond and a commitment to each other that lasts our whole lives.
Greek life will provide you with a home away from home, a family, support,
and friendship for all your days, not just while you are here in Potsdam. Joining a
sorority can also help improve your GPA's, as is the case for many Greeks.
Greek community will also help you with your personal skills such as time
management and leadership. Running a house is a big responsibility which
requires you to take an active role. Once you are a member, you are part of
a group that will depend on you to get things done. House positions are an
opportunity to build public speaking, leadership, communications, and
problem solving skills - and they look great on a resume!
involvement is your thing, then Greek Life is for you! Greeks, and especially
Omega, try to take an active role in the Potsdam Community. We feel it is
our responsibility to give back to the people of Potsdam
through service activities such as cleaning the Newman Center
and the Animal Shelter, taking the animals at the shelter out for walks,
raising money for the American Cancer Society, and throwing candy to the
kids at the Christmas Parade.
At Omega, we
are proud of our house, our letters, and most importantly our sisters. We
have lived at 51 Elm Street
since 1968, and are happy to say that we do own our house. The letters Ù Ä
Ö mean sisterhood, friendship, support, and love. We are committed to our
sisters, our school, and our community. One step into our house and you'll
know how important and special sisterhood is to us. We are proud to be
members of such a wonderful house!
