Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. Pi Mu Chapter

The late Brother Anthony Akers and Brother Eddie Karim started PI MU on September, 4 1984 in Morgantown, WV. The chapter has ever since has been serving the community in keeping with the fraternity’s mission. Brother Akers and Brother Karim arrived on the campus of West Virginia University in the early 1980’s after leaving Boston University. Upon arrival they noticed that there were other forms of Greek life on the campus, but none to which they could relate, so they decided to start a chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha to bring some light to the dull campus.

The Alpha light began in the Spring of 1981 at the Sigma Chapter. This is the same chapter that the late Brother Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a member of. Brother Akers and Brother Karim began to put their plan into action, and before they knew it, the Alpha Light they brought with them from the Sigma chapter was finally shinning bright on the campus of West Virginia University on the 4th day of September, 1984.

Since the start of The “POWERFUL” PI MU Chapter, the brothers of PI MU have been heavily involved in community projects and various services and volunteer work. Throughout the years the chapter has endeavored to raise for many different local charities, worked closely with the Ronald McDonald house, Boy’s and Girl’s Club, and the children’s ward at local hospitals.

The “POWERFUL” PI MU Chapter has used its “POWER” to help uplift the community, each other and those who are to come. PI MU Chapter has a history of being a dominant force in stepping at West Virginia University in our crowning titles as Step Show champions in ‘93, ‘94, ‘95, ‘97, ‘98, ‘99, ‘00, ‘01, ‘02, ‘13, ‘14.

Alpha Men are on the forefront of social change in America. Although we all pursue goals in diverse fields of interest, we share a common mission in uplifting the economic condition of all our people. It is simply not enough for an Alpha Man to obtain a college degree, still a larger task remains. An Alpha Man must provide sound leadership in his community, being committed to service. He is charged to lend a hand to his fellow man.
