Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. is the first international fraternal organization founded on the campus of a historically black college.
BIRTH OF OMEGA
November 17, 1911 on the campus of Howard University, Omega Psi Phi Fraternity was founded. The illustrious founders of the organization were 3 students, Frank Coleman, Oscar J. Cooper, Edgar A. Love and faculty adviser Professor Ernest Everett Just. These men noticed students had come to college for various reasons. The men who had come to college to prepare for places of leadership in their communities were men they believed made of Omega material.
This standard still holds true, today. To be a man of Omega you must exhibit a willingness to want to contribute to it. This organization helps bring out good qualities that already exist because “Omega does not make great men; great men make Omega.”
The Eta Beta Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. was the first Black Greek Letter Organization (BGLO) chartered on the campus of The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga – February 27, 1971.
Members of the Eta Beta Chapter can be found throughout the country impacting and uplifting lives, in true Omega spirit.
The ultimate goal for every member is to learn, grow, and graduate into the next phase of life and continue being the greatest group of achievers.
Omega extends beyond the city limits of Chattanooga and members gain access to an abundance of contacts who believe in lifting as we climb.
