Kappa Alpha Psi Crest

Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc. was founded on Jan. 5, 1911, on the campus of Indiana University of Bloomington, Ind. Early in this century, African-American students were actively dissuaded from attending college. Formidable obstacles were erected to prevent the few who were enrolled from assimilating into co-curricular campus life. This ostracism characterized Indiana University in 1911, thus causing Elder W. Diggs, Byron K. Armstrong, and eight other black students to form Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, which remains the only Greek letter organization with its 1st Chapter on the University's campus.

Omega Delta Phi

National Founding Year:1987

Colors: Scarlet and Silver

Open Motto: "Crescit Eundo – It grows as it goes”

National Website:omegadeltaphi.com

"Since founding in 1987, Omega Delta Phi has been an organization perpetually dedicated to the idea of constant growth and improvement. We must work to form an organization which not only challenges the traditional perception of fraternities, but also deals with the issues of culture and race in a completely new perspective. Thinking out of the box is no longer an acceptable plateau; the box must now be removed completely."
