They will tell you that Phi Beta Sigma has a truly universal brotherhood.  But don't take my word for it . . .

How should I go about expressing my interest in PHI BETA SIGMA?

The most productive way to express interest is to talk to a current member of Eta Psi Sigma Chapter.  Then, that brother can tell you what else you need to do.  He can also answer any other questions you might have.  There is a list of members on this website, as well as email addresses.  If all else fails, just look for the letters, Phi Beta Sigma (
ΦΒΣ), on a shirts, jackets, or other apparel around town.

How can I learn more?

Go to the internet, library or a bookstore and check out The Divine Nine - a book that covers the histories of all the nine member organizations of the National Pan-Hellenic Council, Inc. (NPHC), which are Phi Beta Sigma, Zeta Phi Beta, Alpha Phi Alpha, Kappa Alpha Psi, Omega Psi Phi, Iota Phi Theta, Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, and Sigma Gamma Rho.  However, your most valuable resources are conversations with brothers. You should get in contact with any of the brothers on campus or members of nearby graduate chapters. They will tell you everything you want to know. They can also be valuable resources throughout your process, as well as later on once you are a member.
