The Mu Chapter of Omicron Nu, a national home economics honor society,
was founded at Cornell in 1919. Dr. Georgia L. White of the Michigan
Agricultural College acted as the installing officer. The aims of the
organization were to promote scholarship and to further home economics
education at Cornell. The chapter also provided a scholarship to the freshman
woman in Home Economics with the highest scholastic standing. In 1990, Omicron
Nu merged with Kappa Omicron Phi to form Kappa Omicron Nu Honor Society.
