Beginning as local sorority Lambda Gamma Chi in 1988, Eta Omicron was colonized in 1989, as the first NPC group at Western Connecticut. Even while a colony, the group was making their name known on campus, as well as raising money for the Ronald McDonald House. In 1990, 41 collegians and seven honorary members were initiated in the charter group. The chapter has a reputation of having the most outstanding leaders on campus and was recognized as the outstanding Greek organization in 1998. Even without a house, dormitory or assigned meeting room, Eta Omicron is setting the standards for others at WCSU to follow. Today, there are two national fraternities on campus and Sigma Delta Tau has joined the campus. Nicole Taglianetti Chambers has a long international service record.
