Omegas hope to bring campus unity through service

Prairie View's Rho Theta Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc. is making sincere steps to ensure the Prairie View student body grows as a community.
Marked as the second day of Que Week, Jonathan L. Miller, spring 2012 initiate headed the Omegas' first of many Brother-to-Brother seminars.
"We want to show the young men both on and off campus what we consider a real man to be. We want to partner with any organization that wants to partner with us whether it's another Greek letter organization, CSO, or RSO. We just want to help," said Harrison Blair, 2012-2013 Student Government Association President.
In partnership with health services and student conduct, Miller, a senior education major, and Omega advisor, Ivory L. Jenkins, brought together a few men on campus to bridge the generational gap between the older and current generations.
The seminar featured Donnie Howard, student conduct associate, Steve Ransom, director of student engagement, Marvin Spencer, manager of transportation services and Darryl Williams of health services.
Rho Theta helped facilitate an open environment for the young men on campus to ask for help with problems from men with more life experience under their belt.
"Women have a whole month. Men don't have anything. We don't have chance to rap as men. Omega Psi Phi thought it would be good to host an event where men can be men to sit down and talk about the concerns of the world," said Jenkins.
Alike to Hooks for Hunger and Walk for Literacy, Brother to Brother serves as one of many Rho Theta initiatives to help mentor the younger generation but now with a campus platform.
"Again the whole point is to build a bridge because at the end of the day we are all black fraternities. Brother-to-Brother...we are all brothers. All of us should be able to speak to the freshmen and bring them into the fold to help them with different issues on campus. That's really the goal," said Miller.
