GENERAL INFO

Be a leader. Be a friend. Be of service.....
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.

Alpha Phi Omega offers several opportunities to you. We offer you a series of creative situations in which to develop your leadership skills, a chance to build lasting friendships both on your campus and across the country, and a way in which to give of yourself as an active participant in a meaningful service program designed to help others.

Alpha Phi Omega is unique; it is a Service fraternity. We use the concepts of fraternalism as a means of providing service, to ourselves as well as to others. The fact that our meetings are held in campus meeting rooms or our members' apartments or dorm rooms does not decrease our sense of brotherhood. In addition, since we are unique, we have no conflict with social fraternities; independents, commuters, dorm dwellers, and social fraternity members: all are welcome as members of Alpha Phi Omega.

We believe that you will find Alpha Phi Omega is worthwhile and that the opportunities Alpha Phi Omega offers will be a valuable part of your college experience. More than 256,000 students on 687 campuses across the nation have found Alpha Phi Omega to be a rewarding part of their lives. We hope you will agree that you should add your talent and energy to our Fraternity.
