Hear From Some Our Recipients

The Omicron Gamma Zeta Scholarship gave me opportunity to focus my efforts on my academics and extracurricular activities, rather than finding ways to pay off loans. I am currently a sophomore at the University of Texas studying in the Business Honors Program and finance. Additionally, I am minoring in management information systems and pursuing a certificate in real estate. At UT, I am enjoying my time as part of the Undergraduate Business Council, where I represent the business school by hosting events, such as case competitions and volunteer functions.

Omicron Gamma Zeta Chapter Scholarship has given me opportunity to pursue an education in a career path that I am passionate about. Because of the scholarships I have received, I am able to not only attend Baylor, but also be enrolled in flight school to further my training as a pilot.
