OPS Presidents

According to Terrie Aamodt’s Bold Venture: A History of Walla Walla College (page 68), Omicron Pi Sigma was established April 28th 1927.  The Greek letters chosen by the men’s dormitory club mean “The Loyal Fellow-workers.”  OPS has sponsored many events over the years, but by far the best known is OPS Amateur Hour.
