Omega Delta Sigma Helps Ease Transitions for Veterans

11 Sep

Former United States Marine Shane Stodghill is currently completing a bachelor’s degree in government at the University of Texas at Austin. In addition to his studies, Shane Stodghill has completed extensive volunteer work, some most notably with the Omega Delta Sigma National Veterans Fraternity.

The Omega Delta Sigma National Veterans Fraternity is a resource organization dedicated to assisting with the transition from military service to student life for servicemen and servicewomen. The organization established its first chapter at the University of Florida in 1999, with the second chapter established nine years later. This second chapter established Omega Delta Sigma as a statewide fraternity, paving the way for its subsequent national recognition.

Nowadays, Omega Delta Sigma not only maintains membership, but also fosters relationships with the educational institutions with which it is affiliated. This includes contributions to these universities and colleges, as well as the surrounding areas and communities that house members. Activities and events sponsored by the fraternity in the past include Toys for Tots drives, Veterans Day ceremonies, and tough mudder competitions.

To maintain membership in Omega Delta Sigma, members must sustain a minimum grade point average of 2.5, as well as complete a minimum of 10 community service hours each semester. Members are also required to pay national and chapter dues, as well as attend chapter meetings.
