Omega Sigma tau is the first and largest Asian-interest fraternity established at UCLA. We proudly enter our 50th year of leadership, excellence, lifelong friendships, and service to our community. Even after four decades, our ideals remain stout: Brotherhood, Class, Confidence, Excellence, and Diversity.
Termed the “Gentlemen of Asian Greek Council (AGC),” Omegas excel academically, socially, and mentally. One will not find our fraternity anywhere else for we are proud to be the only chapter of its kind as our founding fathers envisioned. The experience of being part of omegas is unlike anything one would imagine it.
Omega Sigma Tau was founded in 1966 by Ron Watanabe, Bob Tsutsui, and Dennis Onoda of the Nissei Bruins Men’s Club. These three names are icons in our history because of thei efforts and their contributions to Omegas as presidents of the fraternity. The initial charter group that they formed with other members of the Nissei Bruins Men’s Club consisted of about twenty men.
Since its founding in 1966, Omegas has grown to become one of the largest and most active fraternities in the nation. Although the size of the fraternity does fluctuate, Omega Sigma tau maintains an average of 65 members per year, and this fraternity has seen days when there were over 80 members during a school year.
