The Rho Nu Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Incorporated was chartered April 1, 1971 in Galveston, Texas. The charter was the result of the dedication and perseverance of three area Omegas, Bros. Leroy Sterling, DDS, Alvin Stevenson, and Thomas Warren.
The charter, initially applied for in 1969, was denied by the Fraternity due to a lack of the requisite number of members to form a chapter. Having eight of the ten members required to form a chapter, the brothers got to work and recruited two other Omegas in the area and reapplied for the charter in January of 1971.
The Rho Nu Chapter scholarship is named in the honor of Bro. Thomas H. Warren, who lived long enough to see the chapter become active and functioning. Bro. Warren was initiated at Fisk University in 1926.
The members of Rho Nu Chapter all continue to represent the fraternity's cardinal principles of Manhood, Scholarship, Perseverance, and Uplift.
