𝗙𝗘𝗔𝗧𝗨𝗥𝗘𝗗 𝗦𝗘𝗥𝗜𝗘𝗦: The Men of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc.
Rho Mu Mu
West Side of Chicago, Illinois
Chartered in 2011
On today’s installment of “The Male Perspective,” Rho Mu Mu Chapter is represented by its current Basileus, Bro. Dagogo Obomanu III.
On September 6, 2011, 25 men who believed there was a critical need for the fraternity to have a presence on Chicago’s West Side came together to charter Rho Mu Mu. Over the years, the chapter has worked with neighborhood organizations to distribute “Back to School” supplies, fed meals to the unsheltered, helped clean up parks, and given away thousands of dollars in academic scholarships to high school seniors.

“Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. is the first international fraternal organization founded on the campus of a historically black college.
On the evening of November 17, 1911, Omega Psi Phi was founded inside the Science Building (later renamed Thirkield Hall) at Howard University located in Washington, D.C. The founders were three undergraduates — Edgar Amos Love, Oscar James Cooper and Frank Coleman. Joining them was their faculty adviser, 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.” (https://oppf.org)
