Membership Roster Updates
In addition to maintaining membership within the chapter’s profile on Hornet Hub as required for all student organizations, all social-Greek organizations will maintain a more detailed roster with the Greek Life Advisor. The following policy and procedure is established to coordinate the task of verifying membership in fraternities and sororities each semester.
Instructions for Adding New/Reaffiliated Members to Chapter Membership Rosters:
- Obtain the Greek Grade Check/Roster Update Verification Form via the attached link or in the Student Organizations and Leadership Office.
- Each new/member must complete the form (Last name, First name, Student ID#, signature).
- Please make sure you categorize each member accurately:
- New – A potential, prospect, associate, interest, pledge, new member.
- Reaffiliated – A member that is returning from an “inactive” status.
- Do not complete the Term GPA/Overall GPA, for this is for SO&L use only.
Instructions for Changing a Member’s Status or Removing Members from Chapter Rosters:
- The Chapter President or an authorized officer must request a copy of the current chapter membership roster from the Greek Life Advisor via email or by visiting SO&L.
- Members may only have the following status within the organization:
- Active – A dues-paying member; potential, prospect, associate, interest, pledge, new, and initiated members.
- Alumni/Alumna – A member who has graduated from the University or has been granted alumni/a status due to the extent of their undergraduate time (i.e. “5th-year alum”)
- Inactive – A member that is not paying dues, participating, and has been given or granted a leave of absence by their organization.
- Disaffiliated – A member that has lost recognition or removed themselves from the organization and is no longer, by any means, a member of your organization.
In order to maintain the accuracy of chapter membership, the Chapter President, or an authorized officer must update and sign off on their finalized chapter membership roster updates no later than the first and last Friday of each semester. A copy of the chapter membership roster may be provided to Inter/national Representatives, Traveling Consultants and/or Chapter Advisors.
Greek New Member Education
The purpose of Greek New Member Education is to provide a standardized educational program that uses a bystander intervention framework to empower newly affiliated students to promote, create, and maintain a healthy and thriving Greek community. Attendance to this program is required of all new members/associates/pledges of recognized social fraternities and sororities within the five Greek Councils (Interfraternity Council, Latino Greek Council, National Pan-Hellenic Council, Panhellenic Council, and United Sorority & Fraternity Council) within the semester in which they begin their new member/pledging/intake process.
If you are a Greek-affiliated student who has already been initiated into a social-Greek organization at a different college/University, you may request, in writing to the Greek Life Advisor, an exemption of this requirement.
All new members must register/RSVP for one GNME session.
Space is limited, once a session fills you will have to find another. If you end up needing to switch, please contact the Greek Life Advisor to move your RSVP from “yes” to “no” in the session you selected and RSVP to the one you want to attend instead. This is vital to not only free up a spot for your peers but to ensure you are able to attend the session you want to.
Once a new member has completed their RSVP and has begun to prepare for their GNME experience, here are a few notes that will be helpful for both the new member & facilitators:
- Please show up at least 20 minutes prior for check-in. We will begin promptly.
- Bring your OneCard and have it out/ready @ registration.
- Plan to be present for the duration of the program. Individuals who show up late or leave early- will not receive credit.
If you have any questions, please contact the Greek Life Advisor, Ashley Torres

Order of Omega
Order of Omega is a nationally recognized Greek Honor Society whose members, drawn from the fraternity and sorority community, represent outstanding scholarship, leadership, and service. Members have a strong, positive impact both on their own organization and on the entire Fraternity and Sorority community. Only 3% of fraternity and sorority members are selected each year, ensuring that members are among the top fraternity and sorority leaders on campus.
The Order of Omega was founded at the University of Miami in the fall of 1959 by a group of outstanding fraternity men, who felt that individuals in the Greek community should be recognized for their service to the fraternity system and the University.
The Epsilon Nu Chapter of the Order of Omega was founded at the California State University, Sacramento on January 18th, 1984. Order of Omega is considered an “active honorary” society that brings exceptional Greek-affiliated students together to bring light to all the positive benefits of membership and good work done by fraternities and sororities.
