About Beta Omicron Sigma

Beta Omicron Memebers

The Beta Omicron Sigma Chapter was chartered June 4, 1949 by five ingenious men: James W. Parrish, J.E. Payden, Fred Philpott, C. Edgar Sinkford, and Marion T. Fredrick. The chapter has seen members come and go over the years; however, our stability lies in our members’ love for true Brotherhood, committed Service, and uncompromising Scholarship. Our vision, "Providing outstanding community service and social programs that address issues that impact African-American men and boys in Columbus Ohio", has kept our chapter on the cutting edge of community service over the years. We believe whole-heartedly in our Fraternity motto: "Culture for Service and Service for Humanity", and efforts to gauge the needs of African-American men and boys have driven some of our most successful programs.

A Sigma man embraces the memories of the past and looks forward to creating paths for the future.
