Alpha Phi Alpha, the first intercollegiate Greek-letter fraternity established for African American men, was founded at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York by seven college men who recognized the need for a strong bond of brotherhood among African descendants in the United States.
The objectives of this fraternity are to stimulate the ambition of its members; to prepare them for the greatest usefulness in the causes of humanity, freedom, and dignity of the individual; to encourage the highest and noblest form of manhood; and to aid downtrodden humanity in its efforts to achieve higher social, economic and intellectual status.
Though it is nice to receive attention for service, all Alpha Chapters take greater pride in being part of a strong service organization which holds as its slogan: FIRST OF ALL, SERVANTS OF ALL, WE SHALL TRANSCEND ALL

“If there is one thing I am absolutely certain of, it’s that the leadership roles I've experienced throughout my Fraternity & Sorority Life experience have been more rewarding than I could have ever imagined. Yesterday’s lessons have enhanced and developed the gentleman that I am today. It is because of this platform, that I continue to strive for academic excellence and making my community a better place.” - Kevin Kelly '19
