Phi Rho Eta (PH) is a nationally incorporated, fraternity that was founded on August 22, 1994 at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, Illinois. The founders are LaMont Taylor and Marvin Randolph. Phi Rho Eta is based on the three principles of pride, respect, and excellence through community development, academics, and social interactions. The founders, Marvin Randolph and Lamont Taylor, were raised in neighborhoods that overflowed with the social diseases of drugs, violence, poverty, and hopelessness. Randolph and Taylor met as brothers of the Zeta Nu chapter of Alpha Phi Omega, and while there determined the ideas and implementation for Phi Rho Eta.. The founders had an idea to establish an organization on the premise that it would promote the principles of pride, respect, and excellence.
