Today marks Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc.’s 108th Founders Day anniversary, paying homage to the four founders of the fraternity formed at Howard University in 1911.
Students Frank Coleman, Oscar J. Cooper and Edgar A. Love and their faculty adviser Ernest E. Just began Omega Psi Phi under the cardinal principles of manhood, scholarship, perseverance and uplift. Today, the Qs continue to uphold that legacy and boast several high-profile members who proudly rep their perspective chapters.
