Missouri Western State College was established in 1915 and became a four-year college in 1969. Phi Sigma Kappa and Tau Kappa Epsilon entered the campus in 1971. 15 men organized an interest group in Spring 2003. After an additional nine men became new members, the group obtained colony status in June 2003. A petition for charter was submitted by 29 members and seven new members in January 2004. Michael Perry, Tarkio '70, was colony advisor. Elijah Haahr, Epsilon Omicron '04, was colony president.
The chapter was installed on April 17, 2004 in ceremonies on the MWSC Campus. Elijah Haahr, Epsilon Omicron '04, won the Frank F. Hargear Memorial Award in 2004. In Fall 2005 the chapter grade point average was 3.21, while the All-Fraternity GPA was 2.78. The chapter voted to surrender its charter on December 13, 2007, with fifty members on its chapter roll.
The Epsilon Omicron Colony at Missouri Western was re-started in the Spring of 2016 by Matt Weido, San Jose State '13.
