Omega Delta is a multi-cultural social fraternity founded in the campus of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The Alpha Chapter was established on January 19, 1997; the organization has since expanded to seven chapters, six campuses in the state of Illinois, and a seventh chapter at Marquette University in Wisconsin. It is a member of the InterFraternal Council (IFC) at all the campuses, it has a Chapter House. During the fall semester of 1996 at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, a group of friends decided that they would join a fraternity. An associate who was already a member of an existing organization, asked the men to unite with him and become a part of his fraternity.
