Welcome to the Mu Theta Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. at the University of West Florida. Our Chapter was founded on May 21, 1976 and has since then upheld our Fraternity's Aims of Manly deeds, scholarship, and love for all mankind. We take great pride in being a community of gentlemen, a sanctuary for scholars and a rendezvous for fraters. Being one of the smallest chapters in the state of Florida, we have always strived to be the best that we can be, and truly believe that "Goodwill" is the monarch of our house. In fact, we believe that we are the Chapter of friendship and brotherly love. To the brothers of Mu Theta Chapter, to be an Alpha Man means more than just to wear a pin, but requires intrinsic qualities that are developed deep within.
BRIEF HISTORY OF THE FRATERNITY
On December 4, 1906, it had been decided that the organization known as the Social Study Club during 1905-06, and also as the Alpha Phi Alpha Society since October 23, 1906, should be a fraternity. Considerable discussion has developed over the names of the Founders of the Fraternity. The Founders of the Fraternity can be only those persons who initiated the fraternal idea and remained steadfast to their design even in the days of struggle and conflict. The original seven include those men who were members of both organizations, the Social Study Club, and the Fraternity, who had remained steadfast to the ideal of a Greek-letter Fraternity during the months of uncertainty through which the club was passing, who did not waiver in their efforts to bring about the realization of their vision, and who dared to be pioneers in an untried field of Negro student life. These seven men, the JEWELS of the Fraternity are:
Henry Arthur Callis Charles Henry Chapman Eugene Kinckle Jones
George Biddle Kelly Nathaniel Allison Murray Robert Harold Ogle Vertner Woodson Tandy .
