NU OMEGA CHAPTER

Dr. Dewitt T. Burton, Francis M. Dent, Odie T. Davis, Charles Washington, David Smith and Livingston Jeffries, chartered the Nu Omega graduate chapter of Detroit, in 1923. In the early 1940s Brother George Isabel, who served as 10th Grand KRS (1937-1944), lobbied for Nu Omega as a member of the Detroit Housing Commission, to assist the chapter in purchasing a property for meetings. Brother Isabel helped make it possible for Brothers Dent, Burton, Jeffries, Davis, Smith and Washington to acquire the Historic Omega House located at 235 East Ferry, Detroit, Michigan, in 1942. This property is one of the oldest continuously owned properties by a chapter in the fraternity’s history. Nu Omega is the largest chapter in the 10th District and one of the largest in the fraternity.

FRATERNITY HISTORY

Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. is the first international fraternal organization to be founded on the campus of a historically black college. Omega Psi Phi Fraternity was founded on November 17, 1911, at Howard University in Washington, D.C. The founders were three Howard University undergraduates, Edgar Amos Love, Oscar James Cooper, and Frank Coleman. Joining them was their faculty adviser, Dr. Ernest Everett Just.

From the initials of the Greek phrase meaning, "FRIENDSHIP IS ESSENTIAL TO THE SOUL", the name Omega Psi Phi was derived. That phrase was selected as the motto.

Manhood, Scholarship, Perseverance, and Uplift were adopted as Cardinal Principles.
