On behalf of the Brothers of Omicron Chi Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Incorporated, welcome to our website.
With a legacy established by generations of great men not the least of which being its first initiate – the 28th Grand Basileus Brother James S. Avery Jr., since January 1955 our Chapter Brothers have been working together to serve the best interests of Plainfield, NJ and the surrounding communities.
Today this Chapter of more than 90 men enter FY 2019 focused on:
- Emphasizing health & wellness through events like our annual Blood Drive and 5k Run/Walk
- Strengthening our community through our activities like our annual Toy Drive and monthly “Feed the Less Fortunate” program
- Building the next generation of leaders through endeavors like our Omega Leadership Institute mentoring program and support of the Four Pillars Foundation's annual scholarships
- Maintaining a solid infrastructure to sustain this great organization for decades to come.
In collaboration with our 501c3 partners – Four Pillars Foundation – we co-host our Health Fair, Scholarship Ball, and Golf outing which benefit High School seniors attending four-year colleges and universities. Recent honorees have attended such schools as MIT, Stanford, University of Chicago and others of the nation’s top institution.
We look forward to your continued support of our calendar of events including the MLK Birthday Celebration at Plainfield’s Emerson School (January 19, 2019), our FunnyBone Comedy Show (March 22, 2019) and the James S. Avery Scholarship Ball (May 18, 2019).
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!
