Omega Mu Chapter: Founders’ Day Weekend

The Omega Mu Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. would like to welcome everyone to the era of the Zeta RennaissanZe.  The theme will be running throughout the semester and will highlight the growth of the chapter in the organization in every aspect of life.  
We introduced this theme to the campus on Founders’ Day Weekend through a series of events catered to the student body.  The chapter started off the weekend by hosting a yard show and were gracious in having the newly resurrected Alpha Pi Chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. perform during the show as well.  The next day, we had the wonderful opportunity to do service at a local church and assist with their local literacy program; we opened our home to everyone and had a cookout before Mercer’s Men Basketball team took on Samford at home.  Sunday morning, the chapter gathered at the local ministry on campus in worship.  
Founders’ Day weekend was an extended weekend that also included Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Omega Mu took the opportunity to gather with both Epsilon Tau Zeta and Gamma Pi Sigma to participate in a street clean-up as well as the annual MLK march held in downtown Macon.  The chapter continued this emphasis on growth into the week with a panel consisting of local officials entitled “When the Law Bends: Find Unity in the Community” held in conjunction with Mercer’s Men of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc.  The panel served to be very informative in how police brutality works and what is done in the Macon community surrounding the campus to prevent future incidents.  Then, to end off a great month, the Omega Mu Chapter raised $400 for the March of Dimes with our popular event Zeta’s Got Soul Food!
