[ UPenn Alpha Phi Omega ]
What is Alpha Phi Omega?
Alpha Phi Omega is a national, co-ed service fraternity that has set the standard for college campus-based volunteerism since 1925. We have active chapters on over 350 campuses, and we strive to help each individual member develop leadership skills, experience friendship on many levels, and provide service to others.
At Penn, we are the Delta Zeta chapter of Alpha Phi Omega. We host a variety of events, volunteer for local organizations, and get together for fellowships!
“My favorite part of APO is definitely the positive impacts that we’re able to make with the local community, but also with each other. The group is so diverse in class years, majors, passions, but we’ve all come together for a mutual interest in community service, and over time, we’ve all grown as leaders and friends. APO is definitely a great source of support for me, and even with these virtual circumstances, I’m grateful that we’re all still able to connect and bond with each other as if we were in person together.” – APO Brother, Beta Zeta Class
Alpha Phi Omega develops the leadership skills of its members. You will have the opportunity to serve as a chapter officer to plan and execute any number of service and social programs, as well as have the chance to participate in a variety of leadership development workshops sponsored by Alpha Phi Omega.
Alpha Phi Omega is a fraternal organization and we believe participating in a wide variety of social programs helps build a strong feeling of fellowship. Our social activities, which range from local chapter parties to weekend gatherings involving members from many chapters, provide opportunities to make lasting friendships.
In Alpha Phi Omega, you will be a member of the nation’s largest and most respected service fraternity. Our Projects serve young and old, campus and opportunity, the nation and our own members. Each chapter decides its own service program, so members have the opportunity to offer ideas for projects and to see them implemented.
