The Sigma Delta chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc. recently celebrated the 50th anniversary of the chapter’s establishment at Auburn University. Founded on May 19, 1972, the Sigma Delta chapter was the first African American fraternity chartered at a predominately white institution in the state of Alabama. The organization helped pave the way for the establishment of the university’s National Pan-Hellenic Council, or NPHC, and set the tone for what it means to be a Black organization at Auburn.

"We are thrilled to celebrate the men of the Sigma Delta chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity for such a historic feat,” NPHC advisor Benard Goins said. “I know their future will be just as bright as their past.”
