2018 Elections – Nominations Open

Greetings fellow Mu Omega Alumni Fraters

It is that time of year that the Election Committee reaches out to the Alumni membership to canvas and identify Fraters that would have an interest and the time to serve on the Alumni Board.
We are always looking for fresh input, new ideas, and perspectives. This is a great way to continue to serve Mu Omega’s Alumni Members.
If you are interested, please contact via PM on Facebook or by email, either Gary Martin or Don Early .
We look forward to hearing from those Fraters that have an interest.

Mu-Omega Honored by Fairfax City Council

Esteemed Fraters,

Tonight, through the coordinated efforts of the Alumni Association, Mu-Omega was honored for its 45 years of incorporation as a chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon.  Mayor Scott Silverthorne issued a proclamation citing their achievements, especially the recent efforts of the chapter and their recognition as a Top Teke Chapter. Video of the presentation can be viewed here (notable portion begins at 2:45)
I was privileged to accept the award on behalf of the Alumni Association and many men of the active chapter showed up on short notice to lend their support.  Some pictures are attached and the full text of the proclamation reads as follows:
Whereas, The history of the Mu-Omega Chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon of George Mason University began in 1968, as the group then known as the “Symposium”, and
Whereas, As Symposium became a colony of Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity, they took on the name “Symposium of TKE” and on February 21st 1970, the group was officially recognized by Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity and was founded in the Mu-Omega Chapter, and
Whereas, As the first recognized Fraternity at GMU, Mu-Omega has been operated consistently for the past 45 years and has initiated over 850 men into the bond of Tau Kappa Epsilon; and
Whereas, Over the years, the chapter has completed many philanthropic efforts including support of the Special Olympics, the Alzheimer’s Foundation, and the for the past two years has held a TKE Week event to raise over $15,000 for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in addition to conducting fundraising to benefit various local needs, and
Whereas, This past year, the collegiate members of GMU were recognized as top performers nationwide in all assessment areas including scholastic achievement, recruitment, philanthropy, chapter size, and alumni relations and TKE International will present them with the Top Teke Award at the 58th Biennial Conclave gathering to be held this upcoming August in New Orleans, Louisiana; and
Whereas, The TKE Mu-Omega Alumni Association was founded on September 29th, 2009 and is led by an executive board to provide mental, moral and social development opportunities for collegiate and alumni members.
Now therefore I, Scott Silverthorne, Mayor of the City of Fairfax, in concert with the City Council, do hereby proclaim February 21, 2015 as
Mu-Omega Chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon Day
In the City of Fairfax and invite the community to join us in congratulating the Mu-Omega Chapter on their 45th Anniversary at George Mason University.
On this 10 day of February 2015
(signed Scott Silverthorne, Mayor)
Please join us in extending congratulations to all Mu-Omega members who worked hard over the past 45 years!
Looking forward to seeing everyone at the reunion on Friday.  This proclamation, along with other bits of Mu-Omega history, will be on display.
