Omega in The Rattle
Omega Chapter also won first place in the Penn State Homecoming celebration, the largest and most competitive homecoming celebration in the country. Paired with the Tapestry Dance Troupe, the group built a float, competed in numerous spirit points' competitions, created and performed a skit, ran in a 5K and helped with the overall planing of the celebration. Also, John Boston (2014) was honored as a member of the Penn State Homecoming Court.
Brothers young and old gathered to celebrate Omega Chapter's 95th Anniversary at a Black Tie Gala held at the Nittany Lion Inn on October 19, 2013. Former Alumni Association President Ed Brown (1987) served as the Master of Ceremonies. A keynote address was delivered by Penn State University Trustee Anthony Lubrano. The undergraduate chapter introduced and recognized AJ Bobby and his parents and siblings. The Bobby family is Omega's "adopted" THON family, and the chapter is helping AJ in his fight against leukemia. Silver Legions, Golden Guards and several other awards were presented, including Omega's introduction and inaugural presentation of the Richard Maltz Century Award presented to Chapter President Ian Maxwell. The award recognizes the undergraduate brother who has done the most to further Theta Chi at Penn State and it was created to honor Richard Maltz (1990) for the work that he has done at President of the alumni board. Special thanks to Leo Sugg (1988) for all of his work in planning to make this a great event. The alumni are currently conducting a capital campaign to help renovate the chapter house at 523 S. Allen Street. Check out for more information.
