Pi Kappa Lambda was founded at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois in 1918, and in 1940 it was admitted as a member of the Association of College Honor Societies. It is the only college honor society in music, and its primary objective is the recognition and encouragement of the highest level of musical achievement and academic scholarship. 

The Theta Omicron Chapter of Pi Kappa Lambda at the University of Mount Union was chartered on April 29, 1997. Chapters of the Society extend membership invitations to the highest-ranking students from the junior and senior classes, and to faculty members who meet the regulations stated in the National Constitution.
