Our cardinal principles.

Alpha Phi Omega is built on our three cardinal principles - Leadership, Fellowship, and Service. These principles guide our chapter to best serve the fraternity, campus, community, and nation.


We strive to build leaders within our chapter, and we do this is in many different ways. As a chapter, we provide programming and events for brothers to learn more about themselves and improve as leaders. The National Fraternity also provides an in-depth leadership development program to build leaders all around the nation. We work to grow into the best leaders we can be. Some of the programs the fraternity takes part in are explained below!

At the completion of the APO LEADS series of courses you will have a set of transferable skills that are applicable to the work world and to other potential leadership positions. Learn more about APO LEADS here.

Alpha Phi Omega has many opportunities to lead within our fraternity.

  • You may be elected or appointed to serve as part our Executive Board

  • You may be elected to represent our chapter at Section, Region, or National Conventions.

  • Volunteer for the fraternity at the National level and help create programming for all chapters, nationwide.

APO Impact is a series of webinars across many different topics. The topics can apply to many different aspects of your life, APO or not. These are great ways to increase the impact you make on the fraternity and others in your life. Alumni from all over the nation host these on a weekly basis.

Learn more about yourself and your brothers through various leadership building events. Our Vice President of Leadership plans events with their committee to further develop leadership skills within our brothers.


One of the most important aspects of our fraternity is making bonds within our brotherhood! Alpha Phi Omega Theta Epsilon holds a variety of events to build friendships with a diverse group of people where connections can be made in a fun and friendly environment! Alpha Phi Omega is not only about providing service, we also love to have a great time! Our brotherhood is what makes up the chapter and its success. Below are some events that we have had!

We host a wide variety of fellowship events!

The events can change each semester depending on what people are interested in, but some of our favorites include:

Fall Barn Dance, Spring Formal Dance, Group Potlucks, Family Game Nights,

Alpha Phi Omega Theta Epsilon's service program provides opportunities to develop awareness of social issues and build friendship and leadership skills and provide strong direct service through a variety of community partners!
