The Classy Gentlemen of Sigma Rhomeo Fraternity, Inc. was established on the campus of Prairie View A&M University, in the year 1980, in efforts to fulfill the accomplishments of the Greek lettered Sorority, Sigma Gamma Rho Inc. In the fall of 1990, all Greek organizations disbanded their affiliates. As a result our name was changed to The Fraternal Order of Sigma Rhomeo Fraternity, Inc., in order to continue functioning as a social and cultural vehicle at universities. The purpose of the Elite young men was to enhance brotherhood, social awareness, participation, and development, through social programs. This was prepared to strengthen the University's educational and cultural objectives.
