A Lifetime of Success

In the fall semester of 2017 a group of veterans got together and discussed ways to give back to USC, find more veterans hidden among the student population and to establish a social organization to engage with the student body. In spring 2018 the California Beta Chapter, Omega Delta Sigma, was established at the University of Southern California. While at the University of Southern California the brothers of Omega Delta Sigma want to make the university the most veteran friendly college in the nation and the first private school in the country to accept Omega  Delta Sigma into Greek Life. The chapter has set out to connect veterans with the student body, engage in philanthropy events and to help the local communities by giving proceeds to such organizations like, Support Our Troops, Toys for Tots, and Wounded Warriors Project. The brothers of Omega Delta Sigma are creating a legacy they hope will continue for years to come.



In the summer of 1999 a group of veterans discovered that it was difficult connecting with other veterans who were pursuing an education at the university. They wanted a way to be social and involved on campus, but found that they had a hard time relating to a traditional fraternity. Their military service had already established a strong mutual bond, so they decided to devise a way the brotherhood could carry over into their collegiate experience. It was that same year at the University of Florida, Omega Delta Sigma was founded.

 

Since its founding, Omega Delta Sigma recognizes over 18 chapters across the United States. Towards the end of 2016 the Veterans Association at the University of Southern California made tremendous strides to bridge the gap between the cost of tuition with the use of the Yellow Ribbon Program, allowing more veterans to attend the university.
