Chapter Motto: "Enthusiastic Eta Mu Mu - Christ based and merciful Omega-minded brothers, humbly, motivating and making a change in the community"
The Eta Mu Mu (HMM) Chapter of Omega Psi Phi was formally founded Nov. 1, 2008 located in Denton, Texas. One of the primary goals of this chapter is to humbly motivate and be a force for positive change in all that we undertake. We are acheieving this through the same faith based belief of the four founders, and we live by the four cardinal principals they espoused. Through promoting like ideals and programs of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. we are here to offer our knowledge, hands and hearts in service to enhance the African-American community and the world at large. We are bridge builders to the next generation of our youth.
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 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.
