So the theme for Omega’s RW 2023 is…

Omega 2023 Reunion Weekend

5 Days of Sisterhood & Omega Music
An Across-the-Generations Musical Experience in Potsdam, NY.


Read on for all the details.

Here is what is planned!

Omega Alumnae Philanthropy:
Omega dropping of school supplies

Discussions amongst sisters have led to the desire to increase our philanthropic endeavors. This is our chance to give back to the community we all called home at one time. Please consider participating in this year’s Reunion Weekend projects, even if you are unable to attend the reunion.

New! Professional Clothes Closet Donation To expand our impact as Omega alumnae, the Reunion Committee has chosen to support SUNY Potsdam’s Professional Clothes Closet. The Closet is a student-run initiative that collects and distributes clothes for students in need of professional clothing for interviews and student teaching.

Here is what is proposed:
Each TH or group puts together one (1) outfit to donate to the Closet. (Due to space constraints, please do not bring more than what is being asked.) For example, if you have a TH or group of four, each person chooses one piece to contribute to the outfit (i.e. blouse, skirt, slip, scarf OR suit jacket, dress shirt, tie, and dress pants). A complete list of what is accepted will be provided. Shoes, boots, or outerwear are not accepted at this time. There will also be an option to contribute even if you are not attending the 2023 reunion.

Time of donation presentation 10AM.   We will discuss the logistics of where and when to meet if you wish to attend this presentation.

For Clarkson University:
New! Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI) Donation
To expand our impact as Omega alumnae, the Reunion Committee has chosen to support Clarkson’s DEI Office. Diversity is the presence of differences within a given setting whether it be differences in race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, socioeconomic status, age, and more. Equity is recognizing that we do not all start from the same place, and we must acknowledge and adjust imbalances. Inclusion is the practice of ensuring that people feel a sense of belonging and support from an organization, the workplace, and from society as a whole.

When we look at our own Omega sisterhood, we see this diversity firsthand and strive for equity and inclusion. It stands to reason then that we would support Clarkson’s efforts to meet their goals to:

  • Increase the number of underrepresented students and staff
  • Professionally develop its students and employees to be global citizens

Thank you to those who donated.

Time of donation presentation 10:30 – 11:30AM. Stay tuned for details if you wish to attend this presentation.

For the Community: School Supply Drive
Once again, school supplies will be collected and donated to the Lawrence Avenue Elementary School. A list of suggested supplies will be provided. Double the impact by purchasing your donation in Potsdam. Supplies will be collected at ‘Song Central Station’, TH# TBA, up until the time of delivery on Friday morning. There will also be an option to contribute even if you are not attending the 2023 reunion.

When: Drop off your donations anytime at ‘Song Central Station’ (TH# TBA) through 9:00AM Friday morning, July 12, 2023.  Anticipate drop off time is 11:30 AM – 12PM.

Here is a list of supplies provided by the school but feel free to donate items not on the list. Bring supplies with you or double the impact by purchasing them in Potsdam.


For SUNY Potsdam:
Prometheus Alumni Association Food Pantry will be dedicated on Saturday, July 15, 2023 at 10AM. We have helped Prometheus with food collection in the past and the Omega Alumnae Reunion Committee would like Omega Alumnae to be present with a donation.
