About Us

Omicron Chapter — University of Iowa

The Omicron Chapter of Theta Tau was founded on February 3, 1923 at the University of Iowa. Since then, our chapter has grown to encompass fifty-six members, including both undergraduate and graduate students. Also, there are many alumni that remain active throughout Iowa, and other areas of the United States. Our chapter focuses on the professional development of individuals as well as the development of strong and lasting relationships among members. Omicron chapter holds Recruitment each fall and spring semester. We have seven committees, one of which each member is involved in. These committees include Alumni Relations, Brotherhood, Fundraising, Marketing, Philanthropy, Professional Development and Recruitment. Through these committees, and various officer positions, we have numerous leadership opportunities within the fraternity. With each semester, we hope the the leaders of the committees aim to better both the fraternity, the College of Engineering, and the community as a whole. With a recent increase in interest in the fraternity, more and more members are being initiated each semester. With that being said, even as our numbers grow, our chapter remains close.
