About AO and AΦA

Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity is the first intercollegiate Greek lettered fraternity for African American men, founded at Cornell University in 1906. While the Fraternity now has hundreds of chapters all around the world, Alpha Omicron Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity was established in 1923 at Johnson C. Smith University in Charlotte, NC as the 36th Chapter in the Fraternity. The College Brothers of AO administer the Fraternity's national programs and host other events sponsored by the chapter from the campus of JCSU. Alumni of Alpha Omicron Chapter are servant leaders in their fields and industries across the country.  

Events Hosted in Charlotte

AO sponsors a multitude of events throughout the year in and around Charlotte, NC, in addition to implementing the national programs.  The College Brothers are hosting everything from spirited socials, to pageants, to educational events on JCSU campus, and more.

Working In All Major Industries

Of the seven founders of Alpha Phi Alpha was a Physician, an Agriculture professor, the Executive of a major civil rights organization, an Engineer, a High School Teacher, a US Senate Committee staffer, and an Architect - several of whom were the first to break the color line in their fields. For over 100+ years, across all major industries and sectors, you'll find Alphamen. We are particularly groomed for community development initiatives, and lead broader economic development projects.
