Omega Recording Sessions

This past July reunion, a group of Omega alumna reserved a recording studio at the Performing Arts Center at the Crane School of Music and recorded several sorority songs. Since some songs were no longer being sung (for example, a song about Theta Chi being the brother fraternity to Omega), and some songs seemed to have changed over the years, the Omega Alumni Association wanted to preserve these songs for future members. The group also had a recording session at their 2014 July Reunion.

Delta Sigma Phi / KARMA Fraternity

since 1929

KARMA Fraternity was founded as a society at Clarkson University on Novemer 20th, 1929 and resided at 11 Pierrepont Ave (currently the home of Ago).  In 1936 they became a fraternity.  KARMA is a word in Sanskrit that means to do or to act.  The Karma Kats pep band provided entertainment during Clarkson hockey game.

On November 3rd, 1957 they became the Beta Rho chapter of Pi Kappa Phi (aka Pi K).  This is also the year the brothers salvaged an old school bell that is still in use today at Clarkson hockey games and graduation.
