LEAD TO KNOWLEDGE

 

HISTORY

1/7

During the fall semester of 1994 an idea was born. Already established leaders within their own university and sponsored organizations sixteen men from various backgrounds saw the need to the increase the exposure and awareness of diversity. By mid-semester the excitement grew and they decided to form a fraternal brotherhood unique among the Greek System at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Connecticut. Recognizing the means a fraternity would provide these men devised a structure based on Academic Excellence, Community Service, Brotherhood, and Culture. Hence on February 1st, 1995 at Sacred Heart University, Omega Phi Kappa Multicultural Fraternity Incorporated was established.

Since its inception Omega Phi Kappa Fraternity has dedicated itself to continuing: to unify college men of all ethnic backgrounds; promote a solid understanding of brotherhood; increase the exposure and awareness of diversity; promote continuing education in scholastic, personal and professional growth; and volunteer our services for the benefit of the community. As Omega Phi Kappa continues onward our foundation is strengthened, and through the support and pride of the brothers our future is brightened.
