Theta Upsilon Omega (ΘΥΩ), or TUO, was a national collegiate fraternity. Representatives of several local fraternities at a 1924 meeting of the National Interfraternity Conference concluded to form a new national through amalgamation, resulting in the creation of Theta Upsilon Omega on May 2, 1924 from nine locals:
- Delta Tau, Worcester Polytechnic Institute
- Phi Kappa Pi, Stevens Institute of Technology
- Zeus Fraternity, University of Illinois
- Kappa Sigma Phi, Temple University
- Beta Kappa Psi, Bucknell University
- Kappa Tau Omega, The George Washington University
- Sigma Beta, University of New Hampshire
- Delta Kappa Nu, Penn State University
- Phi Delta Pi, Davidson College
Merle C. Cowden, of Worcester, was chosen first national president.
Two additional chapters were chartered, but growth stalled during the Great Depression. In 1938, following negotiations, TUO merged with Sigma Phi Epsilon. Four TUO chapters merged with existing SigEp chapters, and seven others were rechartered as such.
