On behalf of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., Alpha Delta Chapter, I would like to welcome you to the 2013-2014 school year. I am excited and honored to serve as Chapter President.
Please allow me to share my theme and platform for this year. The theme is “Raising the Bar, Blazing a Trail,” and the platform: the 3R’s: Reconnect, Rejuvenate, Reclaim. As we start the new academic year, it is important that we reconnect with one another and our community and begin to uphold the standards of Alpha Phi Alpha so that our mission and vision are not just rhetoric. So it is my hope that we are able to “Raise the Bar” and “Blaze a Trail” for a new day in Alpha.
1. Reconnecting with brothers we will continue to build the bond of brotherhood in our chapter and allow us an opportunity to care for one another. It is also important that we reconnect with the Los Angeles Community at and around USC. Considering the climate of USC (privileged, predominately white campus surrounded by a largely minority community) it is imperative that Alpha Phi Alpha reconnects with our community, especially after last semester’s racial tension from the end of the year party.
2. Rejuvenate our passion and commitment to Alpha Phi Alpha. We must bring new ideas, innovative services, and implement our national programs in our community. These activities will reconnect brothers to service and rejuvenate the spirit of Alpha Phi Alpha in our community and USC.
3. Reclaim the positive light of Alpha Phi Alpha on the campus of USC, reclaim our entrepreneurial spirit which allows us to implement stellar programs, and reclaim the City of Los Angeles as well as USC as Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. land.
Brothers, with your help, guidance, and support, I believe we can implement the 3R’s with ease and success. In Alpha Phi Alpha, all of our “Phi’s” are the same size. As your leader, I am a servant to the chapter and will be working side-by-side with the brothers to ensure Alpha Delta shines.
To the young men and guest, the brothers of Alpha Delta would truly like to thank you for taking the time out to visit our newly constructed website. Since 1921, Alpha Delta has been dedicated to upholding the values of our seven beloved Jewels as servants of all and truly embodying the core principles of manly deeds, scholarship, and a love for all mankind. We are committed to providing service and advocacy to the University of Southern California and the greater Los Angeles community, and we hope that members in our community feel the presence of Alpha Phi Alpha wherever an Alpha Delta brother is represented. I would personally like to thank the members of the USC community for helping make Alpha Delta an integral part of the campus through their continued support. Once again, thank you for taking the time to visit our page and if you have any comments please do not hesitate contact us.
