"The Fraternity of Choice"

Attending college is more than a formal education. It's getting along through good times and bad. It's facing new challenges and frustrations. It's discovering your place in a larger world. It's memories indelibly etched in your mind for a lifetime.

Phi Beta Sigma can play an important part in making your college experience positive, fulfilling, and rewarding. Phi Beta Sigma nurtures individuality while providing greater opportunities for Brotherhood, Scholarship, and Service. Phi Beta Sigma is continuity. It's yesterday with it's traditions and goals carried on from generations past. It's today as a home away from home and a center for your college activities. It's tomorrow as a creator of friendships and ideals that will last your whole life through.

Phi Beta Sigma is an International Fraternity with chapters spread across the United States, U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, Europe, Africa, Japan, and South Korea. While its members are diverse, they share certain ideals in common. In Phi Beta Sigma Brotherhood, Scholarship, and Service are the significant influences. With genuine brotherhood there develops among men a common cause that brings out there best. With scholarship there comes achievement. And with service to one's fellow man, there is born a unique sense of usefulness that enriches all of life.

Remember, the parties and step shows come and go, but the brotherhood will last a lifetime. Fraternities have personalities. As you would measure an individual, so you should measure a fraternity. Phi Beta Sigma seeks to attract young men of vision and character. Such young men will mold the future of the Fraternity and carry its ideals and principles on to the next generation. Membership in Phi Beta Sigma 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.
