Rho Gamma Gamma | Message from the Basileus
Welcome to the Rho Gamma Gamma Chapter Virtual Home! I am honored to be a part of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., and am equally honored to lead this amazing chapter. As Basileus, I take great pride in shepherding Rho Gamma Gamma’s progress as we endeavor to emulate our founders and model our Four Cardinal Principles: Manhood, Scholarship, Perseverance and Uplift.
In 1911, four men founded this illustrious fraternity on those four principles. These men knew that they could no longer just talk about the challenges of their society, but they had to stand up and be leaders among men (Manhood). They knew that one of the ways to make a difference and to change society was through education (Scholarship). I believe that they also understood that the road was not going to be easy; they knew their journey would take (Perseverance) if they were going to effect change. I can imagine that the struggle was overwhelming at times, which resulted in the fourth principle (Uplift).
Our founders had vision and fore-sight, which is still evident today. We at Rho Gamma Gamma continue to live the vision using those same principles in order to make a difference in our communities.
Rho Gamma Gamma is known for being an innovative chapter. We understand that when men stand up, boys sit down. Our desire is to be the premier chapter among all chapters, as we continue to be leaders in our community, and in the city. This chapter is committed to upholding the shining light of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., while uplifting our community and showing ourselves friendly. We endeavor to live out Proverbs 18:24 which states, “In order to gain a friend, we must first show ourselves friendly.”
