Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., was founded December 4, 1906 at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. Alpha Phi Alpha is the first intercollegiate, Greek letter fraternity established for people of African descent. More than 150,000 men have been initiated into the fraternity since its founding. The fraternity was born out of a desire to promote close association and mutual support among African Americans at the turn of the century. Thanks largely to its seven visionary founders, the fraternity has become one of the most prestigious and influential organizations in the world today. The organization is international with local chapters throughout the United States, District of Columbia, the Caribbean, Europe, Asia, and Africa. Alpha Phi Alpha has been interracial since 1945. The list of Alpha men who have made a tremendous impact on the world include: Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Thurgood Marshall, Jesse Owens, Paul Robeson, and many, many more. We, the brothers of the Mu Delta Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. are constantly striving to carry on the legacy.

Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. was founded on the campus of Indiana University on January 5, 1911. Originally charted and incorporated Kappa Alpha Nu on April 15, 1911, the name was officially changed to Kappa Alpha Psi on April 15, 1915. The Black-sponsored Greek letter organization on the Indiana campus might well have begun in 1903, but there were too few registrants to assure continuing organization. In that year, a club was formed called Alpha Kappa Nu with the purpose of strengthening the Blacks' voice at the university and in the city of Bloomington. The reason for choosing the Greek letter name is not known, but it is known that the club expired within a short time. There is no record of any similar organization at Indiana until the chartering of Kappa Alpha Nu in 1911. The founders sought a formula that would immediately raise the sights of black collegians stimulating them to reach accomplishments higher than they had imagined. With achievement as its purpose, Kappa Alpha Psi began uniting college men of culture, patriotism and honor in a bond of fraternity. Subsequently, chapters spread in succession to the University of Illinois, the University of Iowa, and Wilberforce University campuses. By 1919, the Kappa Alpha Psi experience had generated serious interest among Black college degree holders to form Alumni Chapters. The Georgia Southwestern State University Lambda Psi Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. was chartered and duly adopted on April 29, 1983. The seal of Kappa Alpha Psi was affixed on May 5, 1984. Over the past 20 years, the Lambda Psi Chapter has inducted over 100 men into this historical black fraternity.

Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. was founded at Howard University in Washington D.C. on January 9, 1914 by three young black male students. The founders, Honorable A. Langston Taylor, Honorable Leonard F. Morse, and Honorable Charles I. Brown wanted to organize a Greek letter fraternity that would truly exemplify the high ideals of brotherhood, scholarship, and service. The founders deeply wished to create an organization that viewed itself as “a part of” the general community. They believed that each potential member should be judged on his own merits rather than his family background or affluence, without regard or race, nationality, color, skin tone, or texture of hair. They wished and wanted their fraternity to exist as a part of an even greater brotherhood-sisterhood which would be devoted to “exclusive we.” From its inception, the founders also conceived Phi Beta Sigma as a mechanism to deliver services to the general community. Rather than gaining skills to be utilized exclusively for themselves and their immediate families, the founders of Phi Beta Sigma held the deep conviction that they should return their newly acquired skills to the communities from which they had come. This deep conviction was mirrored in the fraternity motto, “Culture for Service and Service for Humanity.” With the force, vigor, power, and energy of its more than 100,000 dedicated men united in more than 700 chapters across the United States, Africa, Europe, and the Caribbean, Phi Beta Sigma continues to faithfully perpetuate composite growth and progress as the “people’s fraternity” dedicated to providing services to all humanity. The Pi Epsilon Chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. was established on the campus of Georgia Southwestern in April of 1986. The chapter is involved in all aspects of the University and the community.

In 1908, Alpha Kappa alpha Sorority Inc. became America’s first Greek-letter organization established by Black college women. Her roots date back to Howard University, Washington D.C., where Ethel Hedgeman Lyle of St. Louis, Missouri conceived the ideas for formation. She viewed the Sorority as an instrument for enriching the social and intellectual aspects of college life by providing mental stimulation through interaction with friends and associates. Through the years, however, Alpha Kappa Alpha’s function has become more complex. After her incorporation as a perpetual body in 1913, Alpha Kappa Alpha gradually branched out and became the channel though which selected college-trained women improved the socioeconomic conditions in their city, state, nation, and the world. In a world in which materialism is pervasive and technology and competition have decreased the need for collaboration and cooperation, it is critical to have an association that cuts across racial, international, physical, and social barriers to help individuals and communities develop and maintain constructive relationships with others. Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority is that vital organization. Alpha Kappa Alpha is a sisterhood composed of women who have consciously chosen this affiliation as a means of self-fulfillment through volunteer service. Alpha Kappa Alpha cultivates and encourages high scholastic and ethical standards; promotes unity and friendship among college women; alleviates problems concerning girls and women; maintains a progressive interest in college life; and serves all mankind through a nucleus of more that 170,000 women in the United States, the Caribbean, Europe, and Africa. To carry out the purpose of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., out National President has devised creative strategies for action. “THE SPIRIT OF ALPHA KAPPA ALPHA” is the international program theme for 2002-2006. In an attempt to do our part as a service organization, we have targeted five areas of interest: Target I Education, Target II The black Family, Target III Health, Target IV Economics, and Target V The Arts. On February 9, 1980, 12 ladies became the charter members of Nu Zeta Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. at Georgia Southwestern State University. The chapter has set high standards both socially and academically at GSW.

At the birth of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. in 1913 at Howard University, the founders envisioned an organization of college women pledged to serious endeavors and community service. These youthful students demonstrated a vital concern for de-emphasizing the social aspect of sorority life. Their ideals have withstood the test of time. Today, Delta Sigma Theta is a public service organization dedicated to a program of sharing membership skills and organizational services in the public interest. • Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., was founded on January 13, 1913 by 22 undergraduate women. These young women wanted to use their collective strength to promote academic excellence and to provide assistance to persons in need. • Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., is a private, non-profit organization whose purpose is to provide services and programs to promote human welfare. • Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., has a membership of over 190,000 predominately African-American, college-educated women.

Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. was organized on November 12th, 1922 in Indianapolis, Indiana by Mary Lou Allison Little and six teachers. The charter members are the founders of Sigma Gamma Rho. The group became an incorporated national collegiate sorority on December 30th, 1929, when a charter was granted to the Alpha Chapter at Butler University. The first three years were devoted to organizing. The first call for a national boule (convention) was held in Indianapolis, December 27-29, 1925
Sigma Gamma Rho's commitment to services is express in its slogan, "Greater Service, Greater Progress." The sorority has a proud history of offering service wherever chapters exist, including Operation Big Book Bag, a program designed to address the needs, challenges and issues that face school-aged children who are educationally at-risk in local homeless shelters and extended care hospitals. The objective is for chapters t provide their local homeless shelters and children's hospitals with education materials, equipment and supplies. Other national projects include Wee Savers, Project Reassurance and The Marrow Donor Program.
The service of Sigma Gamma Rho from a global perspective includes Project Africare and Project Mwanamugimu.

The Mu Mu Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. was established on the GSW campus on July 5, 1983. The organization was nationally founded January 16, 1920 on the campus of Howard University in Washington, D.C. by five African American coeds. These women dared to depart from the traditional coalitions for black women and sought to establish a new organization predicated on the precepts of scholarship, service, sisterhood and finer womanhood. The trail blazed by the founders has been traversed by thousands of women dedicated to the emulation of the objectives and ideals of the Sorority. The Sorority was the first Greek letter organization to charter a chapter in Africa (1948); to form adult and youth auxiliary groups, the Amicae, Archonettes, Amicettes, and Pearlettes; and to be constitutionally bound to Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. Zeta’s national and local programs include endowment of its National Educational Foundation; community outreach services; and support of multiple affiliate organizations. Zeta chapters and its auxiliary groups have given countless hours of voluntary service to educate the public, assist youth, provide scholarships, support organized charities, and promote legislation for social and civic change. A nonprofit organization, Zeta Phi Beta is incorporated in Washington, D.C. and in the state of Illinois. The Sorority is supported by the dues and gifts of its members.

Kappa Delta Sorority... to each of us it has a different and special meaning. We all share in it and give of ourselves to it. In return, Kappa Delta gives to us love, sisterhood, and friendships that last a lifetime. To be a Kappa Delta is both a privilege and a challenge. The strength of our sisterhood lies in the women who work closely together while maintaining their own individuality. Kappa Deltas are concerned about the well-being of mankind and we serve others through our national and local philanthropies. Academic excellence as well as campus activities are important to us. We can be found in many honor societies and campus clubs. We love being together and sharing our thoughts - the serious, the silly, the sad and always the glad. Most of all, we love and honor A.O.T, the very thing that binds us all together.

Since its founding in 1898, Zeta Tau Alpha has grown to a total of 267 chapters in the United States and Canada. Even though we all have busy schedules, we always find time for each other. Within our chapter, you will find true sisterhood that lasts forever. There is an invisible bond that holds us all together. When you pledge ZTA, a whole new world will open up for you because you will feel it in your heart. ZTA is the very first step in a lifetime relationship.... because ZETA IS FOREVER.

he fraternities of Georgia Southwestern State University have a strong tradition of leadership, community service, and brotherhood. In order to uphold fraternity morals and standards, the Inter-Fraternity Council or IFC, was established. IFC serves as the governing board for four fraternities at Georgia Southwestern. IFC endeavors to vanish fraternity barriers, and constitute inter-fraternalism throughout the Greek system. The Inter-Fraternity Council office is located on the 3rd floor of the Student Success Center.

Chi Phi Fraternity is the oldest men's social fraternity. Since 1824, Chi Phi has existed to promote truth, friendship, and personal integrity. During the 1996-97 academic year at GSW, 15 men resided on the second floor of D-wing in Complex III. They became close friends and participated in everything from intramural sports to Relay for Life. These men desired not only to be friends but to be brothers. After careful planning and consideration, these men decided that the Chi Phi Fraternity expressed the same ideals and morals as they. On May 27, 1997, these 15 men were initiated into and became the founding fathers of the Delta Pi Chapter of the Chi Phi Fraternity. The Delta Pi Chapter was established as a new alternative to the Greek life on the GSW campus. Over the course of our existence, our accomplishments have reflected the ideals set forth by our founders. The Chi Phi Fraternity has maintained the highest GPA of any men's social fraternity on campus. Brothers of Chi Phi also participate in such campus activities as The Student Government, Residence Life, C.A.B., Zephyrs, BCM, Concert Choir, and the Orientation Team. Our participation in campus activities have helped us to improve some of the negative stereotypical views of fraternities. Along with academic excellence and campus participation, Chi Phi exists to promote brotherhood and friendship. The experiences we have shared have helped us to become closer as brothers. The bond of brotherhood comes from each of us and can never be compromised.

Kappa Sigma Fraternity is one of the oldest and largest college fraternities. It became the first Greek letter fraternity when it was founded in Bologna, Italy, at the beginning of the 15th century. It was reborn in the New World at the University of Virginia on December 10, 1869. Kappa Sigma is also one of the most prominent collegiate fraternities. Kappa Sigma is basically a college social fraternity. Its goals are many, but all center around the promotion of friendship, loyalty, and brotherhood. Brothers find that working and living together in a fraternity situation can be one of the most educational and rewarding experiences. Striving to be number one in academics, campus leadership, community service, sports, and brotherhood has been the goal of Kappa Sigma since it was founded at Georgia Southwestern in 1969. Kappa Sigma is brotherhood. Membership is not merely a college term endeavor, but a lifetime affiliation of brothers.
