Historical facts: ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

  1. Founded in 1913, Beta Omega Chapter was the fifth women's fraternity on the campus. 

  2. A group of five girls — who had taken the name Gamma Delta Gamma — informally applied for a Kappa charter in 1909 after being inspired by their house mother.

  3. One year in the early history of the chapter, it looked as if Beta Omega would be represented the following autumn by only two girls, so the two were affectionately known as Beta and Omega.

Fun facts:

  1. Beta Omega holds the title for Greek intramural champions. 

  2. Beta Omega supports three different organizations through its philanthropic events.

  3. Although the alumnae association in Eugene, Oregon, was small, the 20 members were of great service to the young chapter. There was help with house rent and expenses, assistance to the chapter adviser, and Portland mothers also stepped in, presenting furniture and rugs.
