Scholarship, fellowship, good character, and uplift of humanity: these principles have established the foundation of the 399th house of the most preeminent fraternity - Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated. It is with great pleasure that we invite you to tour the 399th House of Alpha, one of which that upholds the ideals of manly deeds, scholarship, and love for all mankind.

On December 4, 1906, seven visionary men established the first ever brotherhood focused towards African-American college men at Cornell University. Since 1974, the Iota Beta Chapter has furthered this focus at the University of Virginia and the surrounding Charlottesville community.
