Omega Psi Phi's Online Community
On November 17, 1911, Edgar Amos Love, along with Oscar J. Cooper, Ernest E. Just, and Frank Coleman, established the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity. The name Omega Psi Phi was derived from a Greek phrase meaning "Friendship is Essential to the Soul", and became the Fraternity's motto. Manhood, Scholarship, Perseverance, and Uplift were adopted as Omega's Cardinal Principles.
