Biography/HistoryPhi Upsilon Omicron Fraternity is today a national honor society in family and consumer sciences. However, it began in 1909 at the University of Minnesota as the Home Economics Club, with the intent of service, professional study and advancement of home economics. Phi Upsilon Omicron came into being and the Alpha Chapter was legally incorporated on December 12, 1911.
The Beta Chapter of Phi Upsilon Omicron Fraternity had its beginnings at North Dakota Agricultural College (NDAC) as a local sorority, Chi Gamma Psi. They originally organized in 1912, "with the purpose of promoting high scholarship and a more perfect fellowship and understanding between faculty and students." (1914 Agassiz) In 1913 they petitioned the Alpha Chapter for a charter. Since nothing was heard from the Alpha Chapter, in the early fall of 1914, two members of Chi Gamma Psi took the train to Minneapolis-St. Paul to present their case for a charter in Phi Upsilon Omicron. A few weeks after returning to Fargo, they received the news that the charter had been granted and the Beta Chapter at NDAC was installed on November 14, 1914 in the parlor of the Annex Hotel, consisting of twelve charter members.
