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.”
