Our Story

Omega Phi Alpha National Service Sorority is an organization focused on promoting friendship, leadership development and community service.

Chapters, established throughout the country at colleges and universities, are created to serve these ideals. University students can join Omega Phi Alpha during a recruitment period, serve as active members throughout their collegiate career, and eventually become lifetime members as alumnae.

As alumnae, members can participate in a great deal of leadership opportunities, benefiting from and promoting the principles of Omega Phi Alpha long beyond their collegiate years.


OPA is a sisterhood that serves our communities and develops service-minded leaders.


The purpose and goals of this sorority shall be to assemble its members in the fellowship of Omega Phi Alpha, to develop friendship, leadership and cooperation by promoting service to the university community, to the community at-large, to the members of the sorority, and to the nations of the world.


The national motto is “Today’s Friends, Tomorrow’s Leaders, Forever in Service.” It is a motto that members of Omega Phi Alpha hold dear to their hearts.


The three cardinal principles are friendship, leadership and service.
