“Accept no one’s definition of your life;
We inevitably face adversity. We will encounter people and challenges that will make us question our strengths, exaggerate our weaknesses, and doubt our own self-worth. But we can’t allow these factors to define us. You must be the one to define yourself.
Define yourself with Alpha Phi Omega
Grow with us and discover your best potential. We strive to continually grow in leadership, friendship, and service. In leadership, we encourage our members to take initiative, organize events, and speak out their opinions. In friendship, we foster lifelong relationships and loyal brotherhood. In service, our most valued cardinal principle, we encourage empathy and understanding as we work to improve the community.
Who are we?
