Omega is looking forward to a prosperous fraternity year under the guidance of these brothers.—A “renovate Omega” campaign in now being conducted by the chapter in order to improve Theta Chi’s standing on the Penn State campus. “Renovize rushing,” “Renovize scholarship,” and “renovate activities” are parts of this plan. Omega placed third in both the interfraternity contract bridge tournament and the intramural volleyball tournament.

An Alumni Founder's Day was held by Omega on the week-end of April 8-9 an celebration of the 77th anniversary of the birth of Theta Chi. About twenty-five alumni returned to Penn State to celebrate the occasion with the actives, and to have a real Theta Chi “get-together.” On Saturday evening an informal banquet took place, after which each one of the alumni visitors gave an inspiring talk. The informal meeting proved very beneficial to all and some real spirit was stirred up in the chapter. Following the after-dinner meeting a formal meeting was held, the purpose of which was to install the new chapter officers. The new president, W. Randall Skillen, Jr., outlined is plans for the coming year, and the chapter pledged its cooperation. Some early plans for next year’s rushing were formulated. When the visitors left on Sunday they all agreed that this was the best Founders’ Day celebration ever held, and each one intends to return to the now annual affair.
