Alpha Phi Omega is a national co-ed community service fraternity. Our purpose is to develop leadership, promote friendship and to provide service. Founded at Lafayette College in 1925, our organization is currently active on over 350 college campuses.
Our chapter, Alpha Delta Eta, elects 13 officers, 8 of which serve on the executive board, every semester. Additionally, there are also committees which are appointed that can include any members who want to take part.
In Alpha Phi Omega there are primarily three types of events - fellowship and service events, and meetings. Fellowship events give Brothers the opportunity to socialize outside of meetings and service. Held several times throughout the semester, fellowships in the past have included picnics, laser tag, bowling, cultural dinners, roller skating, movie nights.. pretty much anything fun.
In Alpha Phi Omega, we participate in four major fields of service: service to the nation, community, campus, and brotherhood. Some examples of organizations we have worked with most recently include Habitat for Humanity, The Ronald McDonald House, Food Bank, and book sales for the AIDS Council. In the Spring 2006 semester alone, our Brothers did more then 700 hours of community service. Our chapter is also in charge of Don't Walk Alone every Tuesday night during the semester.
