The brothers of Phi Beta Sigma have yet again pulled of another amazing accomplishment. On May 5th, they chartered the Omicron Iota Sigma Chapter, effectively bringing Phi Beta Sigma to the University of San Diego officially.
According to a report written by Ben Kelso,
“The University of San Diego, founded in 1949, has 18 fraternities and sororities within its Greek community comprising approximately 34% of USD’s student body, according to sandiego.edu. No historically Black Greek Letter Organizations have ever been officially recognized as members of the university’s Interfraternity or Panhellenic Councils.”
This new installment of an officially recognized org is groundbreaking for both the university and Black Greek culture.
“The USD Sigmas, as they are informally known, completed the membership intake process for Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity on the university’s campus under the direction of members from the Omicron Iota Sigma Alumni Chapter of Phi Beta Sigma. The OIS Chapter will serve as the Fraternity’s Collegiate Advisory Alumni Chapter once the new USD Sigma chapter meets the appropriate university charter membership guideline. Until then, the new USD Sigmas will grow their membership and acclimate themselves to their new status on campus.”
We at WatchTheYard are very excited about the establishment of Black Greekdom at the University of San Diego. We would also like to congratulate the chapter’s first line on their accomplishments. The new initiates: Greg Spruell, Myles Ginyard, and Jordan Harrison have made history and now it is time for them to work hard and make more.
