Omega Registration for RW 2022 is now closed but you can still join us (you just won’t get swag)!
If you wish to attend Omega’s banquet on Saturday or attend and any of the school sanctioned events, (including the Taste of Potsdam event on Friday), you must pay for these through SUNY Potsdam’s registration.
Pack Your Bags for Omega Reunion Weekend 2022!
- Save the dates! Omega’s Alumni RW is scheduled for July 13 – 17, 2022. This coincides with Reunion Weekend For SUNY Potsdam and Clarkson University, scheduled for July 14 – 17, 2022. If you are on Facebook, feel free to join the conversation in the All Things Omega Reunion Facebook Group.
All Omega RW registrations were due June 1, 2022.
Given that what we seem to want most is “Omega time,” something our own Mary (MAAH) Landry said a few years back rings true…that “Omegas can have fun in a paper bag.”
So the theme for Omega’s RW 2022 is…
Fun in a Paper Bag!
Since it has been 3 years since we have been together, the entire weekend is centered around spending time together.
Activities planned for some fun include Brown Bag Potluck, Fat Bags from Sergi’s, a Paper Bag Puppet Parade and Sack Race, and Brown Bag Buffet Bash (Banquet)! And YES, we want entertainment!
Our special event for this year is happening on Wednesday, July 13, 2022. Double Axel was scheduled to play for us for Omega Delta Phi’s 60th anniversary in 2020.
Since that didn’t happen, they have agreed to play for us this year! Sisters are invited to Dance the Night Away Half In or Out of the Bag with Double Axel on Wednesday evening from 8 – 10PM!!
Read on for all the details!
Here is what is planned!
Full itinerary with event and activity descriptions coming soon.
ODPAA: School Supply Drive for Lawrence Avenue Elementary School (Part of Potsdam Central Schools.)

- Dance the Night Away Half In or Out of the Bag with Double Axel! Double Axel was going to play for us in 2020 to celebrate Omega Delta Phi’s 60th Anniversary. We took a raincheck and they are playing for us in 2022! We will gather at Knowles Lounge (under Knowles MPR) from 8 – 10PM as we celebrate our sisterhood. Cash bar. Spouses and significant others welcome.
While it is appreciated others outside of Omega may want to enjoy this DA event, the Omega Reunion planners hired them for this private party. Our RW fund plus some generous donations is what is paying for this to happen. Therefore, this event is limited to registered Omegas and a plus one as stated above. Please bring your ticket.
