Phi Upsilon Omicron Honor Society, Beta Psi Chapter

About This Club

Phi U

Phi Upsilon Omicron, a national honor society in family and consumer sciences, has over 88,000 members across the United States, and once a year many attend our conclave, which updates the many chapters on events that happened in the past year. We are a community service based honor society, meaning our chapter, the Beta Psi Chapter, is and has been very involved with the community. In the past years we have done several projects with LA Food Bank, Steven's Hope for Children, Foothill Family Shelter, and the San Felipe Migrant Workers. Phi U also serves the Cal Poly Pomona campus by working closely with several other campus club like FN Forum and Food Science Society, as well as participating in campus wide events such as the Wellness Fair. Phi Upsilon Omicron strives for excellence in school and in the community and welcomes those who have the same outlook on life.
