Omari Daniels (born 13 May 1990) is an Alumni of Beta Mu Chapter (BM 472) at George Washington University and current Member of the Capital Alumni Chapter.

Early Fraternity Life and Career

Omari began attending George Washington University in the Fall of 2008 after graduating from Benjamin Banneker High School. After receiving an email about the Phi Sigma Pi fraternity and seeing that it was more academic based than social, Animal House style based, he decided to rush that following spring, later received a bid invitation to become an initiate, and began the Initiate Process (along with other future Alpha Zetas Marybeth Benton and Sharmeen Hussein, who also lived on the Mount Vernon Campus) for the spring semester. After completing the necessary requirements to become a brother, along with other members of the Alpha Zeta class, Omari was inducted as a brother.

He graduated from the University with a Bachelor of Arts and Sciences in Journalism & Mass Communication in May 20, 2012.

His previous little, Andrew Vu, of the Alpha Eta class, dropped from the Initiate Program in fall of 2009 due to other commitments. However, in Spring of 2010 he took Curtis Davis of the Alpha Theta class under his wing.

Other Interesting Facts

Omari is a Washington, D.C. native- despite not being a Redskins or Nationals fan. He has interned at the National Gallery of Art in the summer of 2007.

He was named most responsible during the final meeting of the Spring 2009 semester, which he is still on the fence about whether that is a good or bad thing. He worked as a Production Assistant in the Book TV Department at C-SPAN, a Visitor Services Representative at the Newseum and is now a Support Specialist for the Golden Key Group in Reston, Virginia.

Post Graduate Life

Since graduating from the Beta Mu Chapter on a different note than expected- they weren't Game of Thrones fans or well versed on Double Jeopardy- Omari has remained involved in Phi Sigma Pi by joining the Capital Alumni Chapter, attending such events as Opera in the Outfield and the PSP Capital BBQ. He became certified in Leadership in Action at the 2013 Phi Sigma Pi National Convention.

He attended the 2012 National Convention held in Orlando, FL. He served as the assistant Capital Alumni Chapter regional delegate alongside Karen Goodman in helping plan the 2013 Capital Region Conference at the Zeta Delta Chapter and was most recently the sole Capital Alumni Chapter delegate for the 2014 Capital Region Conference at the Beta Lambda Chapter. It is a role he maintains for the 2014-2015 semester with the Capital Region Conference to be held at the Beta Mu Chapter. He attended the 2014 Phi Sigma Pi National Convention as the alternate delegate alongside Jeanette Gaida in Atlanta, GA, with Omicron Chapter members Amanda Schwarz and Natalie Benner.

Since then, Omari has continued to attend National Conventions and worked in inter-chapter relations with the Capital Alumni Chapter until 2017, when he shifted to become the Chapter's Social Chair.
