According to the 1983 University of Dayton yearbook, the Omegas formed on the UD campus in 1938 making it the oldest sorority on campus. Their motto was "Sisterhood, Unity, and Love." A November 29, 1984 article in the Flyer News states the Omegas became "a colony of Alpha Phi" and was the first Pan-Hellenic sorority at UD to go national. In April 1985, the sorority exceeded the size requirement with over 75 sisters forming the Zeta Psi Chapter which is still active at UD.
