The brothers of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., Eta Mu chapter of Sam Houston State University are doing big things this year and are ready to let the campus know that Omega is more than meets the eye.
Brandon Ball, president of the Eta Mu Chapter of Omega Psi Phi said, “We are more diverse than what many people may perceive.”
Three undergraduate liberal arts students founded Omega Psi Phi on the campus of Howard University on November 17, 1911. In 1982, the Eta Mu chapter of Omega Psi Phi was chartered on the campus of Sam Houston State University and since founded they have continued to excel in brotherhood and scholarship.
November 17 was the start of “Que Week,” and the brothers of Omega Psi Phi had daily activities open to anyone in the SHSU community.
On Monday the Omegas held their annual Greek Charity Basketball Tournament at Family Faith Church. The brothers of Sigma Nu Fraternity beat Phi Beat Sigma Fraternity and the brothers of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity beat Omega Delta Phi Fraternity.
The Omega’s co-sponsored with S.Q.U.A.D. held a “Kat Style” Dating Game and clothing drive on Tuesday.
Yesterday the Ques held the Hollywood Hound Comedy Show, which included performances from Black Larry and Success as seen on BET’s “Comic View” and “Coming to the Stage” and Lady Mozan who is currently opening for Steve Harvey and has also been on BET’s “Comic View.” There were also performances from Sam Houston’s own amateur comedians and the comedy show dancers.
Many students that attended the show said that it was a huge success and wish the Ques would make the comedy show an annual event.
The Omegas are challenging everyone to participate in the “Campus Wide Community Service Project” at 3:45 p.m. at the Fair Park Nursing Home to assist in the game of Bingo.
Tonight the Omegas are throwing their 14th Annual Pajama Jam at the Walker County Fairgrounds with live mixing from DJ Shawney. Prices are $3 with pajamas, $5 without pajamas and a Greek discount all night long.
“Students should come out to the Pajama Jam as a way to relax before finals,” Ball said.
