Omega Tau Sigma (OTS)

Omega Tau Sigma is a professional service fraternity unique to schools of veterinary medicine. The Illinois Theta Chapter is one of thirteen chapters across the nation which works to promote service, brotherhood, friendship and professionalism among its members. At the University of Illinois, we are no exception.

The Theta Chapter works hard throughout the year to raise money for multiple local organizations that represent the strength of the human-animal bond. Whether it be through pet visitations at local elderly homes, pet washes benefiting humane societies, road races promoting furry family fitness or supply drives gathering donations for homeless animals, OTS does everything possible to make an impact in the lives of people and animals here in Illinois. Look for photos of our monthly team-building and fundraising events on our website at or contact our fundraising committee at to work with Theta members in helping your local organization.

This year, the members of Omega Tau Sigma invite you to come visit us at our Wild Wild West booth outside in the courtyard. Children of all ages will have the opportunity to step back in time to a long-forgotten mining town in the Southwest and live to tell the story. Bring your southern drawl and campfire songs along as we teach our cowboys the history of the miniature horse in America’s Gold Rush era.  Come visit us – proceeds will help local humane societies and rescue groups in Champaign and surrounding counties.
