Why Omega Nu Lambda?

Omega Nu Lambda was formed with you, the online student, in mind.

We have learned that one of most common problems experienced by the online student is the limitation of dialogue and sense of feeling connected to your school and other online students. Dialogue and connectivity gives a sense of community. When you are an off-campus learner, you do not have the same opportunities to join campus clubs or other campus organizations that the traditional learner has.

ONL is a way to provide a sense of community by giving you the ability to network with other ONL members throughout the world through your lifetime ONL Portal. You will have a campus ONL advisor to reach out to and you will have an opportunity for scholarships through your campus advisor as well. Through your nomination to receive an invitation to join ONL shows your school is recognizing your academic excellence as an online student.  Membership into ONL will look great on your resume.

You have worked hard and overcome obstacles along the way! You have stayed the course and earned the grades! Here at ONL we want to help you to continue with your academic success by acknowledging you and your accomplished work, we want to award you with scholarship opportunities and provide continued encouragement by establishing a way to connect with other ONL members throughout the world.

CONGRATULATIONS on achieving academic success as an online student!  We think that is amazing and want to encourage you to stay the course!
