About Phil Romain
The College Bus Tour is named after its founder, the late Felix Philip Romaine, a 1981 initiate of Kappa Alpha Psi and an officer of the Brooklyn-Long Island (NY) Alumni chapter. He was initiated at Delta Beta (Syracuse University), where he earned a bachelor of science in management and communications. He continued his studies at Cornell University, where he earn a certificate of contract administration. At the time of his untimely death, he served as the human resources director for the home care division of the New York City Health & Hospitals Corporation.
Romain credits much of his early success to mentors who exposed him to college life and sparked his interest in pursuing an education beyond New York City's five boroughs. In 2015, he conceived the idea of a college bus tour that gives opportunities to local high school students the same way they were afforded to him. He died in January 2016 and was not able to participate in the inaugural event that took place a few months later. In March 2016, the tour was renamed in Romain's honor, commemorating his legacy of hope for the next generation.
