The Omicron Oracle

The Omicron Oracle is the official magazine of the Omicron Alumni Association, published semi-annually. Since 2011, it has been edited by Sandy Gilbert ’63 and produced by Brett Ainsworth ’92 and distributed electronically to all alumni brothers of Lambda Chi Alpha at Cornell. To submit material or ask questions, email OmicronOracle@gmail.com.

The chapter’s first alumni publication was the Omicron Alumni News, which published from 1916 to 1931. The Omicron Oracle published as a print newsletter from 1935 to 2011. For over three decades it was guided by Henry McNulty ’69, who made it a consistent award-winner among Lambda Chi Alpha alumni publications— a legacy of excellence that continues today.
