OPS Presidents

According to the Mountain Ash, a boy’s club was organized on March 17, 1927 (1927 pg 98; 1928 pg 114).  A month later, the Collegian announced that the boy’s club chose the name Omicron Pi Sigma on April 13, 1927 (14 April 1927, front page).  The Greek letters chosen by the men’s residence hall club mean “The Loyal Fellow-workers.”  OPS has sponsored many events over the years, but by far the best known is OPS Amateur Hour.
