We value those who believe that their membership in Alpha Phi Alpha is the presentation of their personal commitment to these time-valued words.

I am Ready

An Alpha Phi Alpha member’s greatest interest is outside himself.

Becoming a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity requires an investment of your personal time, talents, and money.

We are not looking for candidates who are not interested in serving the communities in which they live.

We are not seeking candidates who do not take academic excellence seriously.

Most importantly, We are not interested in individuals whose actions will put the organization’s brand and well-being at risk.

This ship does not need anchors.
