Bro Leon Smith

Basileus' Welcome

Greetings Brothers and Guests,


Welcome to the online home of the Omicron Chi Chapter (The Mighty OX) of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc.  Our chapter which serves Plainfield, New Jersey and surrounding areas, is a proud member of the Mighty Second District.  We are humbly known as “The Home of 28th Grand Basileus”, in honor of our most profound and significant initiate, the Honorable James S. Avery, Sr. (Omega Chapter).  His legacy of leadership and community involvement is engrained into the very fabric of our phenomenal chapter.


We are charged to be leaders in our community and to actively engage the citizens of Central New Jersey. Through our numerous signature social action programs, the Men of Omicron Chi Chapter are making tremendous, transformative impact in the lives of the people we serve.  In June 2015, we were bestowed the distinct honor of receiving a White House Service Award  in recognition of our scholarship program, our commitment to community service and advancing support of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity’s partnership with the President’s Fatherhood Mentoring Initiative.


I invite you to learn more about Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Incorporated and Omicron Chi Chapter as you navigate through each section of our website. I also encourage you to visit us from time to time and participate in our community and fundraising events throughout the year.


For our fraternity Brothers visiting or new to the area, we extend a warm Omega welcome!  We encourage you to come and visit and consider The Mighty OX as your new Omega home!


On behalf of the Brothers of Omicron Chi, thank you for visiting our website and may God continue to bless you and your family in all of your endeavors.  Long live The Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc!


Yours in Friendship,


Leon M. Smith, II
