Section 51 Day at the University of Chicago, hosted by Gamma Sigma chapter


Alpha Phi Omega is a national, coed service fraternity that has set the standard for college campus-based volunteerism since 1925. We have active chapters on over 375 campuses, and we strive to help each individual member develop leadership skills, experience friendship on many levels, and provide service to others.

Region F of Alpha Phi Omega has 20 chapters providing Leadership, Friendship, and Service in Central and Northern Illinois and Northwest Indiana.

It is the vision of Alpha Phi Omega to be the premier, inclusive, campus-based, leadership development organization through the provision of service to others and the creation of community. Founded on the Cardinal Principles of Leadership, Friendship, and Service, it provides its members the opportunity to develop leadership skills as they volunteer on their campus, in their community, to the nation, and to the organization.

Through these principles, Alpha Phi Omega teaches that we are architects of our own ambitions and that each of us has the opportunity to develop ourselves to be whatever we seek to be.


The Fraternity has several leadership programs to help brothers become better leaders by developing their own personal skills as well as learning more about chapter operations.


Alpha Phi Omega seeks to develop friendship and all members to develop a sense of brotherhood by shared experiences through understanding the fraternal history and goals of creating community.


The chapter service program provides opportunities to develop social awareness, friendships and leadership skills. The Fraternity has established four fields of service in which chapters are involved in.

  • Service to the Campus
  • Service to the Community
  • Service to the Nation
  • Service to the Fraternity
