The House of Alpha
Our Fraternity is not simply a collection of men who share a common experience. We are a community designed to empower, strengthen, protect, and comfort those who abide within and to inspire those who dwell without.
As Alpha Men, we must always prize the Spirit of Brotherhood, Comradery, and Common Fellowship over personal opinions, agendas, and rivalries that do not operate for the better making of Men.
Here we learn the fundamentals of Friendship, study the great mystery of Brotherhood, and service to the world while remaining open to others who may be worthy of our Dear Alpha Phi Alpha.
