Greek Week & Greek Awards

Past activities have included capture the banner, softball, wacky relay race, volleyball, soccer, tug-of-war and fraternity feud. Points are awarded during each event to determine which organization will win the coveted Greek Week trophy.
Numerous awards are given out at the Greek Awards ceremony. This event recognizes the outstanding accomplishments of Greeks throughout the year. Awards are given to chapters and individuals who excel academically, as well as through leadership and community service.
Order of Omega
The Order of Omega is a national honor society recognizing Greek leaders who are of junior or senior standing and have achieved a 3.0 GPA or above. The purpose of the order is:
·To recognize those students who have attained a high standard of leadership in inter-Greek activities, and to encourage them to inspire others
·To bring together the most outstanding representatives of Greek life to create a group that will help influence the organizations' future development
·To bring together faculty, alumni and student members of the institution's fraternities and sororities on a basis of mutual interest, understanding and helpfulness
Recruitment is your first introduction to Greek life. Potential members meet active members in formal and informal settings to learn about each group's goals, traditions and activities. Fraternities and sororities extend bids or formal invitations to join, but it's ultimately between the chapter and the individual-the final decision always belongs to the potential member.
At Quinnipiac, only second-semester freshmen and upper-class students may participate in the new-member process. Freshmen should use their first semester to observe and participate in Greek events and activities before making a commitment.
