Alpha Phi Alpha


Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. is the first African American intercollegiate fraternity. It was founded at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY on December 4, 1906. We are an international organization with roughly over 300,000 members and on March 26, 2022, the Phi Pi Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc was chartered on the campus of High Point University.

The Mission Statement of the Fraternity is to develop leaders, promote brotherhood and academic excellence, while providing service and advocacy for our communities. Manly Deeds, Scholarship and Love for All Mankind, are the aims of our fraternity as well as a great representation of our Motto: First of All, Servants of All, We Shall Transcend All. The Phi Pi Chapter has already started carrying out the mission and aims of the Fraternity and has collaborated with other African American organizations to promote unity within the HPU community. We have also teamed with the Black Student Union on a 3v3 basketball tournament and was able to give a financial contribution to the local chapter of Big Brothers, Big Sisters of America.

Being a charter member of The Phi Pi Chapter will allow me, along with my chapter brothers, to expand services to the HPU community and build long lasting relationships with other Greek letter organizations in the area. As a member of this organization, I am encouraged to be an active leader and role model for other African American students on campus. Our chapter’s plan is to bring to the HPU community one of our national programs, Go to High School Go to College, which focuses on people completing secondary and collegiate education. It is also a program that creates advancement opportunities for those looking to be better contributors to society. I personally believe so much in this program that I received the Black Panther Award for Student Engagement by the Black Student Union and cannot wait to see its overall impact on campus.

I and the other members of the Phi Pi Chapter look forward to growing our organization on campus and hosting more engaging events with the hope of creating an integrated and unified community.
