About Psi Nu
The Psi Nu Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., the 731st graduate chapter, was chartered on 7 April 1972, in Alexandria, Virginia with 29 charter members. These 29 men of like ideals and with a desire to serve mankind were lead by Brother Eugene W. Skinner Sr., who served as the chapter's first Basileus. Through Brother Skinner's leadership and foresight, this chapter has grown from that initial 29 to over 200 Omega Men. As a graduate chapter, Psi Nu has members who were initiated into Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc. as early as 1938 and as recent as 2014. Since 1972, Psi Nu Chapter has brought many men from various walks of life into Omega's folds. Between 1974 and 2014 the chapter has crossed twenty-six lines. Its first line, in Fall 1974, was "Two Dog One", which consisted of Brothers Robert Hicks and Nelson Greene Jr. Its last line, Spring 2014, was " Two Redoubtable Souls of Blood and Thunder", which consisted of Brothers Prince Brown and James Harkless, Sr. The chapter's long legacy of its active members continues to be enduring friendships, loyalty, community involvement, commitment to service and pride in our achievements. However, it's the fraternity's cardinal principles of MANHOOD, SCHOLARSHIP, PERSEVERANCE, and UPLIFT that are the cornerstone of Psi Nu Chapter's foundation today.
