The National Order of Omega is an honor society recognizing outstanding academic achievement in the undergraduate Greek community as well as Greek members who have attained a high standard of leadership in Inter-Greek activities. The Psi Tau Chapter at SUNY Old Westbury was founded in Spring 2015. The Order of Omega was founded on four basic principles:
- To recognize those fraternity men and women who have attained a high standard of leadership in interfraternity activities, to encourage them to continue along this line, and to inspire others to strive for similar conspicuous attainment;
- To bring 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.
- To bring 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;
- To help create an atmosphere where ideas and issues can be discussed openly across Greek lines and to help work out solutions.
