Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc.

Alpha Sigma Alpha Chapter

On January 9th, 1914 at Howard University in Washington, D.C., three young men founded Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc to exemplify the ideals of Brotherhood, Scholarship, and Service while being guided by the motto "Culture for Service and Service for Humanity." Ever since its founding, the fraternity has viewed itself as 'a part of' the general community rather than 'apart from' it. What started as one chapter has now grown to over 700 chapters and 200,000 brothers internationally. The Alpha Sigma Alpha chapter was most recently rechartered at UAH in 2006, and continually strives to be the beacon of light envisioned by the founders through philanthropic, educational, and community service projects on the university campus and surrounding communities.
