What is Alpha Phi Omega?
Alpha Phi Omega is a National Service Fraternity -- college students gathered together in an organization based on fraternalism and founded on the principles of Leadership, Friendship and Service. Its aim is to further the freedom that is our national, educational and intellectual heritage. APO was founded in 1925 based on the principles of the Boy Scouts of America. Scouting affiliation is not a requirement to join the fraternity. Membership is open to all enrolled students who are interested in joining APO.
The Cardinal Principles of Alpha Phi Omega are as follows:
Alpha Phi Omega develops the leadership skills of its members. Members have the opportunity to serve as a chapter officer or to plan and execute any number of service and social programs.
Alpha Phi Omega is a fraternal organization. It offers a variety of social programs that help build a strong feeling of fellowship. Activities range from chapter parties to weekend gatherings of chapters from many campuses. From these activities new friendships are formed and can last a lifetime.
In Alpha Phi Omega, a member is involved in one of the nation's largest and most respected service fraternity. Our projects serve all humanity and to ourselves. Each chapter decides its own service program, which gives each member an opportunity to offer their ideas.
