Gold Line Tree
Origin of Color
The real origin for Gold was fairly simple. We had just been put in as a Chapter, as our Chapter Sponsor Lou, got a sweatshirt, and the letter colors were Gold on White with a navy shirt. I liked the look and by mistake reversed the colors to be White on Gold. It also did not hurt that is was part of the school colors. Later on, Yvonne, Tony (my littles) and I were talking and it came up how much they liked it, and how it felt royal. We even talked about developing family crests and mascots. Time for away from us, but Gold was cemented as our family color.

Tan Line
Founder: Tina Eaves

Tan Line Tree
Origin of Color
The origin of Tan line is as follows: While the re-colonization was happening, Tina was already a brother, having gone through third degree at Eta Alpha (Lock Haven University of Pennsylvania) before she transferred to Pitt. Being that was the case, she was not part of the chapter at the re-founding. She helped them out along the way, but did not become an active brother of Alpha Omega about one year later. So, it was not until she became an active brother with the chapter, that she chose her family line color. As boring as it is, most of the other "good" colors had been taken and the practical side of her said "Well, tan/khaki goes with pretty much everything." One thing that was pretty cool about that time was that she was an Honorary Brother and an Active Brother of the same chapter. At the re-colonization, they made her an Honorary Brother. When she decided to pursue her master′s degree from Pitt and Alpha Omega extended active membership to her at this time.
