TREACHEROUS TAU GAMMA

CHAPTER HISTORY

Tau Gamma is a chapter that was formed with the purpose of joining like men with similar ideas for success through scholarship at Southern Illinois University of Edwardsville. On April 4, 1965 this idea became a reality. Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. was the first black fraternity established at Southern Illinois University at Edwarsville, and later expanded to help form a chapter at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale in 1971.

Since then, Tau Gamma Chapter has released some of the most successful businessmen, politicians and educators into our society. During it’s first stage of developement, it was an intermediate chapter, which embraced all men interested in the “true fraternal life” from both sides of the river. Nu Chi, a graduate chapter in East St. Louis was the catalyst in Tau Gammas’ birth.

The thoroughly immersed nature of this chapter’s rich history will continue to influence young enthusiastic men. Tau Gamma has persevered to be responsive to the social issues in the Metro-east communities by unselfishly displaying its inspirational, social, educational, and civic talents to our youth. The unconditional and genuine love Tau Gamma bretheren have for the fraternity gives them the incentive to make a difference in the lives of others.
