Dear Greek Community,

Order of Omega, a leadership honor society for members of Greek organizations, recognizes juniors and seniors who have exemplified high standards in the areas of scholarship, leadership and involvement within their respective organizations, campus greek life, and the local community. To date, over 500 chapters have been chartered throughout North America, each sharing the common goal of recognizing the student leaders at their institution. The Beta Upsilon chapter of Order of Omega at Cornell University recruits from Multicultural Greek Letter Council, Panhellenic Council and Interfraternity Council chapters on campus.

Order of Omega is now accepting applications for its 72nd tapping class. The application can be found below and is due on Friday, October 2nd at 11:59PM. We are holding Coffee Hours on Tuesday September 29th from 5pm-7pmin Goldwin Smith 142 and Thursday October 1st from 5pm-7pm from 5pm-7pm in Rockefeller 115 so that you can meet some of our current members. Requirements for consideration include current or previous office in a MGLC/IFC/Panhellenic chapter, a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher, and continuing dedication to the Greek system at Cornell University. Thank you, and I look forward to receiving your application!

EVENTS CHAIR Elise Czuchna

Hey Ladies! Wine Tour is this Sunday!! I need everyone to put their name down if they are able to attend! Please try and get this done by tonight. As for your dates, you have until Friday to provide their names and netID's.

The schedule for the day goes as follows:

Abridged Chapter at 11:00 (this will be short and sweet)

Sisterhood brunch at 11:30

Board buses at 12:30 (this means that you should tell your dates to arrive at the house at 12:00, because if they aren't on the bus at 12:30, then you're dateless)

Arrive at Catharine Valley at 1:30

Leave winery at 3:30

Be back to the KD house by about 4:30

Some Guidelines:

Please please please please pace yourselves. We have charter buses scheduled for Sunday, so the buses are actually quite nice. If you throw up on the bus, one of your sisters has to clean it up. In addition, we'll have to pay a large fine that comes out of the Formal budget, and you'll have to pay a $50 fee to Kappa Delta. This means, though, that you should also make sure your date paces him/herself. Because if they vomit, that's still money out of our funds. We will have barf bags, just in case, but please try to be on your best behaviors. Just try and keep it as classy as possible.

If someone needs to go home, we all have to go home, or the individual who needs to go home will have to call a cab and pay for that trip out of pocket. The winery is really far away and it’ll cost an ungodly amount of money. That’s just another reason to pace yourselves.

The owner's rules:

Do not bring outside alcohol (leave it on the bus)

Grounds are returned to original state (we clean up after ourselves and keep the grounds neat. Failure to do this will result in another outrageous fine that comes out of Formal budget.)

Do not go down to the lake (he doesn't own this property and, again, he'll fine us. And apparently the lady who owns the lake property is crazy and will call the cops)

Also, you can participate in wine tastings if you so choose (and have the proper identification), but that will have to come out of pocket. I really wish I could pay for y'all's alcohol, but I can't. National's rules.

I really want you guys to have fun! I know it seems like there are a lot of rules but I think we have the potential to makeSunday really awesome! It's the first time we're really trying a KD organized wine tour so it's definitely an experiment, but I'm really hoping you all enjoy yourselves! I'm really excited!
