Applications for induction into the honoraries are made available in early spring (February) in the Hut (home of Student Life) in February 2012.
Gamma Sigma Alpha
Gamma Sigma Alpha National Greek Academic Honor Society was founded at the University of Southern California November 9, 1989, to promote intellectual interaction between Greek students and the academic community. The purpose of the Society is to promote the advancement of education among Greeks, to instill a greater spirit of cooperation among Greek students and organizations, and to encourage excellence in scholarship. Huntingdon's chapter was founded in 2009.
Order of Omega
The Phi Epsilon chapter of Order of Omega was chartered on December 10, 2007, at Huntingdon College. Order of Omega is a national Greek leadership honor society that was founded at the University of Miami on April 14, 1959. The purpose of the Order of Omega is to recognize fraternity women and men who have attained a high standard of scholarship and leadership in interfraternal activities; to unite outstanding fraternity women and men in an organization that will mold the sentiment of the institution on questions of local and intercollegiate Greek affairs; to bring together faculty, alumni, and student members of the institution’s fraternities and sororities on a basis of mutual interest, understanding, and cooperation; and to create an atmosphere where ideas and issues can be discussed openly across Greek lines. There are more than 500 Order of Omega chapters throughout the United States.
