Brotherhood Scholarship and Service



Bonds that last a lifetime.

The Alpha Beta Sigma Chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. is a real brotherhood with tested and abiding fellowship, a brotherhood that calls for and gladly gives its best in the hour of need. It is a spiritual fellowship that binds us in all activities along life's narrow pathway. Upon it rests the social welfare of each brother.


Impacting the next generation.

Scholarship is highly esteemed as a necessary development for a keen precept of sound judgment. Scholarship expresses itself not only in the acquisition of a superior mind, but also in superior character. The ideal of scholarship is kept uppermost in our minds so that we may be a beacon of light among men.
