Alpha Phi Omega is a co-ed national service fraternity. We devote ourselves to leadership, friendship, and service in all that we do. We are a service organization, the only service fraternity on campus; what this means is you are able to be a part of a social fraternity as well as Alpha Phi Omega. Many of our Brothers are members of other various organizations on campus and are very involved in campus life. We participate in community service of all kinds, and we provide our members with the opportunity to develop leadership skills through: service to the nation, service to the community, service to the campus, and service to the members of the Fraternity.
