A Little MO Info . . .
The men of Mu Omicron strongly believe in giving back to the community. Recently, we adopted Baytree Road to do our part in helping maintain the beautiful city of Valdosta. Additionally, we host a blood drive during Homecoming of every school year. We have participated in various community service projects, including, but not limited to: Habitat for Humanity, mentoring students at J.L. Newbern Middle School & Valdosta High School, and we host countless voting registration drives.
In May 2014, the Mu Omicron chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. celebrated its 38th anniversary. While a number of fraternity chapters across the country were facing negative press due to hazing, the Mu Omicron chapter continues to set high standards in scholarship and service on campus and throughout the Valdosta community. The brothers of Mu Omicron have not only demonstrated high scholastic standards in the classroom while conducting the business of Alpha, but have also been dedicated and involved members of various student organizations, including: National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), Housing & Residence Life, VSU Mass Choir, Student Government Association (SGA), Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE, now ENACTUS), and various honor societies and community service organizations.
Former Assistant District Director, Brother Ryan T. Brown, quoted Sir Isaac Newton saying, "'If I have been able to see farther than others, it was because I stood on the shoulders of giants.' I can truly say that the brothers of the Mu Omicron chapter have stood on the shoulders of giants.
Advisor and former president of Kappa Tau Lambda (Valdosta graduate chapter) of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., Brother Sirocus Barnes stated, “In the poem, 'House of Alpha' by Brother Sydney P. Brown, the author states ‘Goodwill is the monarch of this house, men unacquainted, enter, shake hands, exchange greetings, and depart friends.’ As an initiate of the Mu Omicron chapter in the Spring of 2004, I came to realize the words spoken by Brother Sydney Brown are very true when describing the Mu Omicron chapter. The fraternal bond that brothers from Mu Omicron share is one that is strong, vibrant and tenacious. Brother Sidney Brown goes on to say, ‘I am the college of friendship; the university of brotherly love; the school for the better making of men.’ Mu Omicron has never been in the business of making men, but in the business of making better men. Each brother that has been initiated through the chapter is a better man and leader because of Mu Omicron. In being a leader and a good brother, I have always said, “If Alpha never inconveniences you, then you perhaps you are not doing the business of Alpha.”
In 2005, the Mu Omicron chapter was awarded the National Excellence in Service Award at the National Convention. In the Spring of 2012, we were awarded seven chapter awards at the Annual Greek Assembly of Valdosta State University. As always, the Mu Omicron Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. will continue to move onward and upward toward the light. Mu Omicron’s best days have yet to come!
