The Eastern Region of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., affectionately known as AlphaEast, was founded in 1932; making AlphaEast the “birth place of Alpha.” The region comprises 7 districts that cover 12 states in the geographical areas between Virginia and New England, and the international areas of Bermuda, Germany, Liberia, South Africa and the United Kingdom.
The Eastern Region was monumental to the expansion, development and sustainability of Alpha Phi Alpha, especially in its early stages. It was here that the fraternity was incorporated, held its first national convention and began expansion by establishing chapters on other college campuses such as Howard University, Virginia Union University, Yale University, Columbia University, University of Pennsylvania, among many others.
AlphaEast is also the home of the National Headquarters in Baltimore, Maryland and the region currently has 164 chapters and over 3,500 active members.
AlphaEast takes great pride in being “First of All, Leading the Way.”
