 Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc., is an international brotherhood dedicated to the principles of Brotherhood, Scholarship, and Service to Humanity.  Founded on January 9, 1914 at Howard University in Washington, DC, our unique organization inspires us to address the needs of the community through Projects that cover a variety of initiatives, including Education, Social Action, and Bigger and Better Business programs and initiatives. 


The Fraternity is carrying out its Noble Cause in Florence, Alabama, at the University of North Alabama through its Beta Beta Alpha Chapter.  The BBA Chapter attained its charter in 1998, became re-colonized in 2010 and approved officially at the University of North Alabama in 2013.  The Chapter is associated with the Alpha Sigma Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., at UNA.  The Chapter's membership has a remarkable diversity in national origin, cultures and religions, and displays a genuine attitude of being "the People's Fraternity", with inclusion being the ethical basis of its Cause.



"Culture for Service and Service for Humanity"

Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity can play an important part in making your college and post-graduate experience positive, fulfilling, and rewarding.  This Fraternity nurtures individuality while providing greater opportunities for Brotherhood, Scholarship, and Service.  Phi Beta Sigma is continuity.  It's yesterday:  with its traditions and impact on history, with ideals carried on from generations past.  It's today:  as a home away from home and a center of your college activities.  It's tomorrow:  as a creator of friendships and support networks that will last your whole life.  Honestly, the parties and step-shows come and go, but the Brotherhood will last a lifetime.

Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity accepts the responsibility of meeting the needs of our community and contributing to the well-being of society.  Such a responsibility requires that Phi Beta Sigma selects a membership consisting of men of solid character, men of achievement, men of vision, men of service, men of ambition.  As a a social-service Greek-letter organization with the uniquely outward-focusing motto, "Culture for Service and Service for Humanity", we take our Cause seriously and strive to mold the future of the world, and carry its ideals and principles on to the next generation.  Membership in Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity has been an important part in the lives of over 105,000 men.  We hope you will consider the part it can play in your life.

 If interested in membership in our Brotherhood and its Cause, please don't hesitate to contact us.
