Members of the school's Alpha Rho Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. step at the homecoming festivities.

We asked students and alum to school us on the qualities of a Morehouse man, and here's what they had to say:

1. "A Morehouse man is one who moves through the world with competence and confidence, able at once to compete in the world that he sees and work for a new world." —John Silvanus Wilson, Jr.
