The Eta Nu Nu Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., stands as a testament to the enduring spirit of brotherhood and service. Conceived in 2019 by Brother Jeffery Tarver, the chapter's initial purpose was to reclaim Omega men in the Columbus, Ohio area who were no longer active in the fraternity. With a vision to bring these brothers back into the fold and rejuvenate their commitment to Omega, Tarver's brainchild soon transformed into a vibrant and impactful chapter.

The idea of creating a second chapter in Columbus gained momentum as it became evident that there were many Omegas in the city who were not actively engaged. Brother Lamar T. Cole, the 34th Fourth District Representative, played a crucial role in the chapter's formation. Recognizing the potential of reclaiming brothers, he allowed several Omega men to reactivate the Zeta Beta Chapter, originally chartered in Dayton as an intermediate chapter. Zeta Beta was temporarily relocated to Columbus, where it served as a reclamation hub. In its first year, over 40 brothers were reclaimed and became active once again in the fraternity.

In early 2020, the University of Dayton expressed interest in having a chapter of Omega Psi Phi on its campus. With this new development, District Representative Cole approached the reactivated Zeta Beta Chapter to discuss the possibility of relinquishing its name and charter, allowing it to be reestablished at the university. The brothers of Zeta Beta agreed, and preparations began to charter a new chapter in Columbus.


The chapter’s formation was formalized during the Achievement Week program held in conjunction with Iota Psi Chapter. On November 19, 2020, the Eta Nu Nu Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., was officially chartered with 53 active and financial brothers. 

In less than two years, the Eta Nu Nu Chapter distinguished itself through its commitment to social action and service. The chapter was recognized twice as the Social Action Chapter of the Year by the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity's Fourth District, covering Ohio and West Virginia. In April 2021, the chapter won honors as the Fourth District Small Chapter of the Year. In June 2022, Eta Nu Nu was the only fraternity in Columbus to receive the NPHC Outstanding Leadership Award, underscoring its dedication to community service and leadership.

On June 24, 2022, Eta Nu Nu made a significant commitment to the National Panhellenic Council of Columbus by pledging $25,000 to support the Hope Scholarship over the next 10 years. This commitment to education and community support reflects the chapter's mission to make a meaningful impact in the Columbus area.

Through its dedication to reclamation, community service, and scholarship, the Eta Nu Nu Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., has established itself as a beacon of brotherhood and excellence in the Fourth District and beyond.
