We Do Fine Home

For nation’s first Black fraternity, a new home for its founding chapter


ITHACA, N.Y. — Usually, the Voice doesn’t invest considerably time talking about the details of college or university everyday living. Its reader base is substantially unique than the patrons who read through by means of the Cornell Every day Solar or The Ithacan. The annals of Greek Lifetime at Cornell usually tumble into this classification.

On the other hand, there are exceptions to the rule. For instance, when the nation’s first Black fraternity seeks to own and renovate its possess property. The Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity, launched at Cornell in 1906, has typically rented homes in the program of its record, but it’s hardly ever truly had a spot to contact its own, deed in hand and free to do with the house as they want.

But if existing plans occur to fruition, that will transform. They will very own and renovate a vacant fraternity house in Cornell Heights. They will have a put to call dwelling.
