About Alpha Zeta

Alpha Zeta Chapter History {1973-2013}

I. Birth of Alpha Zeta.

Alpha Zeta Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc. was founded on April 14, 1973 on the campus of Arkansas State University. Alpha Zeta Chapter was the first African American Greek Letter Organization to be chartered on Arkansas State University campus.  Alpha Zeta Chapter was the vision of the Xi Rho Graduate Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc. located in Forrest City Arkansas.

The Xi Rho graduate chapter of Omega Psi Phi fraternity Inc. saw the need and opportunity to establish the first African American Greek Letter Organization on a majority all white college campus. Xi Rho chapter set out on a mission at the Arkansas State University Campus to seek out and procure young men of excellence who they felt exemplified  the Four Cardinal Principles of Omega. Their quest was satisfied with their procurement of 15 young men who met the criteria that Omega strived to uphold.  Once this had been established Xi Rho chapter chose Quranner Cotledge Sp. 1969 Tau Sigma of University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff to oversee the initiation process. Brother Cotledge became the first Dean of Pledges of the Alpha Zeta Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc.

                In the Spring of 1973 Xi Rho Chapter also had an initiation process and thru this process came the first Adviser of Alpha Zeta Chapter Dr. Calvin C. Smith. Dr. Smith was working on Arkansas State Campus and served as the Campus Advisor for Alpha Zeta Chapter until 1994. Dr. Smith will forever be remembered for his service and dedication to Alpha Zeta.  The second adviser for Alpha Zeta Chapter was Dr. Arthur Mclin who was also a member of the Xi Rho Chapter. Dr. Lonnie Williams, member of Gamma Eta chapter is currently serving as the Campus Adviser for Alpha Zeta Chapter, where he is leading and guiding the chapter to meet the needs, demands, and challenges that face our community and nation thru promoting and providing scholarship and excellence and service to all.
