Brief History of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. the Mighty Mighty Chi Theta Chapter On Friday evening, November 17, 1911, three Howard University undergraduate students, with the assistance of their faculty adviser, gave birth to the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity. This event occurred in the office of biology Professor Ernest E. Just, the faculty adviser, in the Science Hall (now known as Thirkield Hall). The three liberal arts students were Edgar A. Love, Oscar J. Cooper and Frank Coleman. From the initials of the Greek phrase meaning "friendship is essential to the soul," the name Omega Psi Phi was derived. The phrase was selected as the motto. Manhood, Scholarship, Perseverance and Uplift were adopted as cardinal principles. A decision was made regarding the design for the pin and emblem, and thus ended the first meeting of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity. In the Fall of 1967, nine men came together to establish their unity as African-American at Florida State University, a predominately white school. These strong young men wanted to form a group that would exemplify their bond on campus. After much deliberation, they decided it would be best to become an extension of a powerful movement that was already in progress and that movement was Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Incorporated. With the guidance of the Chi Omega and Upsilon Psi chapters, Chi Theta chapter was born. As a result of their undying patience, love, time, and affection, The Chi Theta chapter was the first black Greek organization at Florida State University. This was a major step for the university and Omega, as this served as a gateway for other African-American fraternities and sororities to develop at FSU. Officially chartered on August 1, 1970, these distinguished men that formed Chi Theta's were dubbed "The Super Fine Nine". Since Chi Theta's inception, the morals and ideals of Omega has been instilled in all that followed these pioneers of truth and justice. The chapter strived to perpetuate the standards set by our four founding fathers by participating in Achievement Week, Social Action, Talent Hunt, Scholarship Attainment and other key community projects. The members of Chi Theta have continued to spread Omega's influence in the surrounding communities and on campus. Omega Men are consistently involved in activities that mold the climate of the campus such as student government being elected to senate positions, as well as the President's Committee. Most importantly, Omega Men have always taken a strong and active role in the Black Student Union which serves as the centerpiece of African-American affairs on campus.

Perseverance

With now 35 years of hard work and due diligence, Chi Theta has been awarded the highest honor by the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Incorporated by being named the National Undergraduate Chapter of the Year for 2002, 2003, and 2004. Chi Theta will continue to the utmost to exemplify our four cardinal principles of MANHOOD, SCHOLARSHIP, PERSEVERANCE, AND UPLIFT. Uplift
