Bloody Pi Chapter

Bloody Pi Chapter was founded October 28th, 1923 on the campus of Morgan College in Baltimore, Maryland by eight men headed by the Honorable Brother Linwood G. Koger. Pi is among the first 23 undergraduate chapters chartered. Pi Chapter is believed to be the sixteenth undergraduate chapter chartered, although the realignment under the Atkins administration makes this assertion difficult to verify.

It would be improper to consider the history of Pi Chapter without first discussing at some length the origin of Pi Omega Chapter. It was Pi Omega Chapter that saw fit to establish Pi at Morgan’s campus and has insured Pi Chapter’s persistence over the years. Many men initiated at Pi Chapter were graduated from Morgan but remained in the Baltimore area and became members of Pi Omega. As such, the relationship between Pi and Pi Omega is paternal, cyclical, and concomitant. Both Chapters claim many prominent Omegas .

Pi Omega’s birth in 1921, gives it the distinction of being the oldest graduate chapter in this region. In terms of Fraternity culture, age commands respect. The age of a chapter denotes tradition, prestige, and heritage. Older chapters, have much richer traditions. The age of a Brother should in turn suggest the same character traits as the age of the chapter.

Pi, in turn, has the distinction as the oldest undergraduate chapter in Maryland. Additionally, Morgan, Pi’s home, is the oldest HBCU in Maryland having been founded in 1867 originally as the Centenary Biblical Institute.

Pi Chapter was greatly influenced by the direct contact with the builders and shapers of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. The Brothers of Pi had the opportunity to obtain first hand knowledge about their beloved Fraternity, by walking and talking with one of the founders. Very few chapters had this awesome and inspiring opportunity. Pi Brothers also hosted the writing of the Fraternity’s 1963 History Book and were mentored by the author. This was an experience that only Pi Brothers can claim. These two and several other unique experiences set Pi Chapter apart from all other chapters conceived by Omega.
