Rush Details

Have a love for helping others, volunteering, or being part of a wholesome and energizing community? Join your next home: Alpha Phi Omega, Delta Zeta chapter at the University of Pennsylvania! APO is the nation’s largest co-ed fraternity devoted to service and has been a core part of Penn’s civic scene since 1945.

This fall of 2022, we’ll be holding three (3) interactive Meet & Greet events for rushes to meet brothers and pledge educators, to learn about APO and the pledging experience, and to have a good time!

Rushes are only required to attend one (1) Meet & Greet! The Meet & Greets will be held on the College Green (by the Ben Franklin statue) from 7-8pm on 9/7, 9/8, and 9/9. If you can’t make it to any of our Rush events, please contact
