Inspired By Excellence & Ingenuity

Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. is the first international fraternal organization founded on the campus of a historically black college.


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.
  • National Expansion

    Members of the Eta Beta Chapter can be found throughout the country impacting and uplifting lives, in true Omega spirit.
  • Graduation

    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.
  • Network

    Omega extends beyond the city limits of Chattanooga and members gain access to an abundance of contacts who believe in lifting as we climb.
The men of the Eta Beta Chapter have been involved with the progress of The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga since our inception and look to continue on with the rich tradition in both the chapter and the university.


Each November we work in conjunction with our local graduate chapter, Kappa Iota, and seek to serve the campus, community and area high schools. During Achievement Week, the winners of the Talent Hunt Program receive a scholarship award.
Our Miss Omega Psi Phi Pageant seeks to incorporate confidence, community, collegiate involvement, and community service. This pageant is to empower and showcase the beauty inside and out of pageant participants.
We coordinate programs that encourage good health practices. Programs and initiatives include blood drives, mental and emotional health awareness, sexual awareness and breast cancer awareness, and several others.
We hold programs each year to promote economic development for college students that include: financial health, credit score competency, loan repayment, etc.
